Jalapeno Margarita

• 1/2 cup white tequila
• 1/4 cup orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
• 1/4 cup simple syrup, or more as needed
• 4 thin slices cucumber
• 1 jalapeno, halved lengthwiseIce, for serving

Mix together the lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, simple syrup, cucumber and jalapenos in a large pitcher. Chill for at least 1 hour (the longer the margarita sits, the more the cucumber and jalapeno flavors infuse into the drink). Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses, if desired.
