Cucumber-Jalapeño Margaritas:
Recipe adapted from chef Michael Symon

In a pitcher, combine ¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice, 1½ cups white tequila (I use Silver Patrón), ¼ cup Grand Marnier, ¼ cup simple syrup, 1 thinly sliced mini cucumber, and 1 halved and seeded jalapeño pepper.

Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.

On a plate, combine 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon chili powder.

Press moistened rims of 6 glasses into salt-and-chili mixture.

Remove jalapeño from margarita mixture.

Fill each glass with ice, margarita mixture, and 2 to 3 ounces club soda.

Garnish each with a lime wheel.
