Hot chile and cool cucumber in a cocktail -- AWESOME!

CindyJ | May 12, 2013 01:28 PM

I'm a stranger to the cocktail scene, but last night I had an opportunity to order a cocktail called a "Poquito Picante" at a restaurant in NYC, and now I'd love to be able to replicate it. On the menu it's described as "...a gin-based drink, which blends Cointreau infused with jalapeño skins, cilantro, cucumber, simple syrup and freshly squeezed lemon juice."

So the list of ingredients is a start, but I'm hoping that someone with mixology skills can help me develop an actual recipe for a similar drink that combines the heat of a chile pepper with the coolness of cucumber. Thanks!
