Stiff and skinny margarita

Recipe by:Owner/Chef Jonathan Rollo
Greenleaf Chopshop, Hollywood


  • 2 oz. tequila
    2 oz. cucumber juice
    1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
    1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
    Basil leaf and cucumber slice, for garnish
    Orange bitters (optional)


Place tequila in a shaker with ice. Add cucumber juice, followed by lemon and lime juices. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Add ice to glass and garnish with a basil leaf and cucumber slice. (To release the aromatics of the basil leaf, lay it on your palm and give it a light, friendly smack!) Add a dash of orange bitters to the top of drink, if you wish.
