I got this recipe in my inbox this morning from one of my favorite sites, CocktailTimes.com. This looks so light and refreshing… the perfect alternative to the usual beer for 4th of July weekend. I would mix it up and serve them with unusual grilled sausages instead of the expected hot dogs? Or with grilled shrimp skewers?
Ok, so it’s not totally All-American, but that cucumber-blackberry combo sounds the perfect cure for a long, hot summer.
Mint Summer Nightini
– 2 parts Stoli Blackberi, blackberry flavored vodka
– 1 part fresh cucumber juice
– Splash of simple syrup
– Mint leaves
Garnish: mint leaves and thin slices of cucumber
Muddle mint leaves and shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with sprig of mint and thin slices of cucumber.
We’ll be out of the office tomorrow enjoying our Independence. Here’s hoping you have some fun in the sun planned. Happy 4th of July! Stay cool. :coolsmile:
