That Cucumber Cocktail

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
