Cucumber Cocktail

Mix up this refreshing summer cucumber cocktail! Muddled cucumbers and limes are topped with gin, St. Germain, coconut rum, pineapple juice and tonic water.

This cocktail is summer in a glass. Really. I mean it combines refreshing cucumbers with tart limes and is topped with my three favorite spirits: gin, St. Germain, and coconut rum. And when you think it can’t get any better, add a splash of pineapple juice it’s just the perfect cocktail to drink on these hot summer evenings.

The recipe (below) is for one serving, but you could easily make a large batch in a pitcher or set out several glasses on a tray and make them directly in the glasses for easy serving. I served mine the metallic gold barware that I made using my Silhouette.

This cucumber cocktail combines all my favorites: gin, St. Germain, and coconut rum!

adapted from the Tupelo Honey Cafe Cookbook

Makes 1 drink

Ingredients:
1 heaping tablespoon of finely diced, peeled cucumber
1 slice of cucumber for garnish
1 lime wedge
1/2 oz. gin
3/4 oz. St. Germain
1/2 oz. coconut rum, such as Malibu or Kingston

tonic water, I like Fever Tree

Muddle the cucumber and the lime wedge in a 10 oz. glass using a muddler or teaspoon. Then top it with the gin, St. Germain, coconut rum, and pineapple juice. Add the crushed ice to the glass and top with some tonic water. Garnish with the sliced cucumber and serve.
