Mr. Luva-luva

I finally got the itch tonight to recreate the Spicy Lover, the spicy-as-hell-with-a-touch-of-sweet cocktail I had in Vegas a few months ago. I knew it was tequila, lime, agave nectar, chili, cucumber, and cilantro...the amounts, I had no clue. So I guessed, and the results were worth sharing.

If you don't like spicy stuff, I'd guess it would still be good without the hot sauce...I'll totally try that next time. But for now, I'm gonna call it the Mr. Boombastic.

Mr. Boombastic
2 oz tequila(I use 1800 silver)
about a tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp hot water
about 2 tbsp cucumber (2 medium thick slices, chopped small)
2 dashes hot sauce (tabasco or tapatio work well)
Juice of one lime
4 ice cubes

Mix sugar and hot water in a shaker. Stir til disolved, add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Serve in a Martini glass.
(I don't give calorie info for drinks. It takes all the fun out of it.)
