That Cucumber Cocktail

When we first came across this recipe from Alex Bookless in Imbibe magazine, we were amused by what we thought was a “lazy” name.

But then we made it, and learned just how fitting the name is – That Cucumber Cocktail is exactly what it is, a perfect suspension of cucumber flavor in a classic cocktail proportion. The simple syrup and lime (or lemon, if you prefer) perfectly elevate the cucumber notes, and the mint brings in a garden-fresh herbacious scent. It’s utterly delightful.

Place the cucumber slices and mint leaves in your shaker, and muddle forcefully enough to flatten the cucumber slices. Add in the remaining ingredients and some ice, and shake.

Double-strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe glass, and garnish with a fresh slice of cucumber and/or a bouquet of mint.
