  • 12 slices fresh cucumber
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice

  • 6 ounces (3/4 cup) tequila reposado
  • 6 cups ice
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier

Cook's Notes

Reposado, one of four categories of tequila, is aged in wood barrels that lend a mellow character to the liquor. Some versions contain added flavorings and colorings.
