Good morning and happy Friday to you! I hope your day is off to a fabulous start, but before you start making your weekend plans I thought I’d share with you my new favorite cocktail… this cucumber yummy goodness is too good not to try this weekend!
2 slices peeled cucumber, plus 1 unpeeled slice for garnish
6 fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons Agave
1 ounce fresh lime juice
2 ounces cucumber-infused gin (such as Hendrick’s)
3 to 4 ounces club soda
Place the cucumber slices, mint, and agave in a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add the lime juice and gin. Fill the shaker halfway with ice and shake vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes (this seems like a long time, but it’s essential).
Fill a cocktail glass with fresh ice. Strain the drink into the glass, top with the club soda and garnish with a cucumber slice.
