In honor of Cinco de Mayo I am serving up my Skinny Cucumber Margaritas. These margaritas are sugar free and liqueur free, but ever so tasty.

I grow cucumbers in my garden. My garden cucumbers harvest in August-October, so these margs are also part of a new series I am starting this summer called Grow Your Own Cocktails.
