This sous vide infused tequila is your new go-to summer booze. It makes DIY margaritas way more fun, and it’s just as good with my Husband and I’s favorite mixer: Diet Squirt (do NOT pass judgement until you’ve imbibed). The classic pairing of cucumber and lime is all kinds of refreshing in this sous vide infused tequila, and doing the infusion once means you don’t have to pull out a long list of ingredients every time you want a fun cocktail.

Are you still on the hunt for an immersion circulator and/or a vacuum sealer? I can’t recommend Vesta Precision‘s products enough: check them out and hop to precision cooking ASAP!

Sous Vide Cucumber Lime Tequila

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Add sous vide infused tequila to the long list of things you can do with this handy dandy cooking method! Cucumber and lime are the perfect pairing.


  • 1 cup tequila
  • 2 limes, cut into slices
  • 1/3 cup sliced cucumber


  • Get immersion circulator setup and start preheating water bath to 155 degrees F.
  • Add all ingredients to a pint-sized jar.
  • Place the undamaged lids on your jar. Close to “finger tight” (you should be able to easily unscrew with just your fingertips). Shake to combine all ingredients. Drop jar carefully into water. Jar should be completely submerged and you should see small air bubbles escaping. If the jar is floating, your lid is on too tight.
  • Cook for at least 1 hour, up to 3 hours.
  • Remove from water bath and place on a towel and let cool for 30 minutes. Strain the liquid. Pour the liquid back into the jar and place in the fridge to store.

Cucumber Lime Moscow Mules

Sous Vide Infused Tequila from A Duck's Oven

But if you’re looking for an untraditional but refreshing cocktail… say no more. I gotchu. Oh, and since you’ve infused the tequila, you only need one other ingredient. My favorite kind of cocktail!

We’re talking a Cucumber Lime Moscow Mule. Most importantly, you need one of these gorgeous copper mugs from Moscow Muled. Seriously, these things are legit. They do something a lot of other manufacturers don’t: they line their copper mugs with nickel. That’s because copper is a heavy metal that reacts with acidic fluids, such as cocktail ingredients. If you use a copper mug that is not lined with nickel, the acidic fluids in your drink will cause a chemical reaction which may cause you to ingest too much copper, leading to an unhealthy and potentially dangerous concentration of copper in your body.

So get yourself a mug, then make this drink!

Simply pour 2 oz of your infused tequila into a mug, top with ginger beer, and garnish with a lime. Seriously, that’s it. Enjoy!
