Happy Hour: Limelight

Have you ever had a cocktail with cucumber as one of the ingredients? If not, you must shake up this cocktail for yourself pronto!

Don't be afraid of experimenting with savory vegetable flavors in your drinks, think about how classic the Bloody Mary has become over the years. Surprisingly refreshing, cucumber not only spices up a cocktail, it can also turn an ordinary glass of water into a cooling taste treat.

Limelight
From The Bar

1 oz. Lime Flavored Vodka (if you cant find lime flavored vodka, use regular vodka and add a splash of Rose's lime juice)
1.5 oz. simple syrup
1 oz. fresh lime juice
Cucumber
Fresh mint

  1. Muddle cucumber in a mixing glass, add mint and bruise.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, fill glass with ice, shake, strain and pour into a martini glass, garnish with a sprig of mint and a cucumber wheel.

Makes 1 cocktail.

*Please note: I am fully aware that both a cucumber and tomato are technically fruits, however they are commonly referred to as vegetables and that is how I shall refer to them.*
