1 two-inch piece of Persian or hothouse cucumber, peeled and rough chopped
1/2 teaspoon agave syrup
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
2 ounces tequila
2 ounces seltzer
salt, to garnish
kosher salt, for garnish
cucumber ribbons, for garnish
lime wedge, for garnish
Place a good amount of kosher salt on a small saucer. Wet the rim of a lowball glass with the lime wedge. Dip the glass into the salt to adhere to the rim of the glass. Fill with a good amount of crushed ice. Place the cucumber ribbons inside the glass along the bottom. Set aside.
Place the chopped cucumber into a shaker. Muddle the cucumber until broken and smashed.
Add the lime juice, agave and tequila and a cup of ice. Shake well for 15 seconds. Strain into prepared glass.
Top with seltzer and garnish with a lime wedge.
