Thirsty Thursdays: Orange Cucumber SPAgarita

May 3, 2012

This orange cucumber spagarita is a refreshing accompaniment to Betty Crocker's skinny shrimp tacos.  Cucumber and orange slices are muddled and mixed with blanco tequila and orange liquor.  When purchasing your tequila, look for a brand that proclaims 100 percent agave (that will have the cleanest flavor).  Orange cucumber spagarita is delicious and relaxing cocktail best sipped poolside.
