1½ oz. Peligroso Silver
2 oz. Agave Nectar or simple syrup
2 fresh limes, squeezed
3 to 4 Thai Basil leaves
1 splash of ginger ale

Combine the Thai basil leaves and two slices of cumber in a shaker and muddle with the agave nectar or simple syrup. Add the fresh lime juice and tequila with crystal clear ice. Shake vigorously, and pour over the rocks. Garnish with a cucumber slice on the side with a sprig of basil. Throw just a small pinch of black pepper on top.
