Serves 2 (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)

This simple margarita comes together in no time flat.  The cucumber infuses the slush with a cool flavor, which balances the sweet notes from honey at the end of each sip.

  • 1 cup sliced peeled seedless cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
