We call this whiskey cocktail the Cucumber Mint Mash

It’s August. Our garden is teeming with fresh produce. You know what we always say: if you can’t eat ‘em, drink ‘em. Okay. We’ve never said that. We, though, have done it. We did it last night.

We got feisty and went experimenting again. We call this whiskey cocktail the “Cucumber Mint Mash.” With fresh cucumber and mint from our garden, it’s hard to imagine a more crisp and refreshing adult beverage.

Cucumber Mint Mash

Ingredients

  • Four cucumber slices
  • Two tablespoons of blue agave nectar
  • Four ounces of whiskey
  • One ounce of lime juice
