Cucumbers are not just for salads, oh no. Cucumber juice is a great addition to drinks and cocktails: it's light, it's herbal, it's delicious.
It also pairs well with a variety of spirits and flavors. Here are a few ideas.
Give your martini a produce boost with some fresh cucumber. A mix of cucumber, basil, and simple syrup, it’s a quick and easy cocktail but also sophisticated enough for a dinner party. Your guests may think you’re making them a strange mojito until they take a sip. Then they’ll be impressed with your bartending skills.
The coolness and refreshing flavor of the cucumber in this drink balances the sweetness of the honey and dryness of the cava to make a cocktail you’ll want to serve all year long. Lead mixologist of Whisknladle Hospitality Adam Lockridge created the cucumber honey mimosa of cucumber water, simple syrup, and cava with celebratory toasting in mind, specifically at brunch. After all, brunch without a cocktail is just a sad little breakfast.
