There is perhaps nothing more fresh tasting than a cucumber-mint cocktail. We love the addition of spicy ginger and tart lime, which keep you coming back for more.
1 small Persian cucumber, cut into thin rounds
1 (2-inch) knob ginger, peeled and cut into thin slices
4 sprigs mint
2 lime wedges
2 ounces Ketel One Botanical Cucumber & Mint vodka
6 ounces sparkling water
1. In a large glass, add the cucumber, ginger, 2 mint sprigs, lime, and vodka and muddle together until all the essential oils are released. Then strain into a new glass filled with ice.
2. Finish with sparkling water and garnish with the remaining sprigs of mint and additional lime wedges or cucumber slices, if desired.
