Cucumber Margarita's

I first posted this recipe back in 2009.   It sounds... interesting, but to date, I still haven't made these.  Originally I got the recipe and put it in my files back in 2005 when I saw it in Coastal Living but even though I really, really like cucumbers, I just can't get myself to drink them.  Silly, I know.

I am wondering if any of my readers have made these?  If so, please let me know what you think!!

Cucumber Margarita

12 slices fresh cucumber

Lime slices

Combine cucumber and next 4 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Pour into glasses. Top each serving with a tablespoon of Grand Marnier, and garnish with lime.
