2 1/4-inch slicesCucumber
1tablespoonfreshly squeezed Lime Juice
¼teaspoonfresh, seeded, diced Jalapeno pepper
Muddle together the cucumber slices, mint leaves, lime juice, sugar and jalapeno. Combine the muddled ingredients in a shaker with the vodka and ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Note: the spiciness of jalapeno peppers can vary greatly. If you taste the muddled ingredients and would like more heat, muddle additional jalapeno (1/8 teaspoon at a time) to reach your preferred spice. The drink should be balanced between the refreshing ingredients and the heat. Also once shaken with ice, the heat becomes less prominent.
