So fresh and so clean: Cucumber Blueberry Gin Smash


I'm not sure there's a more refreshing cocktail you're going to make this summer. This drink will bring together gin lovers and non-lovers alike, and would be a sure crowd-pleaser at your next summer outing! Not to mention, this falls into the "clean cocktails" category in my book -- so enjoy! Two? :) 


Cucumber Blueberry Gin Smash


Ingredients:

  • 3oz quality gin (Hendrick's recommended)

  • 2 slices of lemon (1/4" thick)

  • 7-10 mint leaves + 1 sprig 

  • 10 or so fresh blueberries

  • 2" thick piece of cucumber, sliced (reserve a couple thin slices for garnish)

  • 1 tsp Dark Agave Nectar

  • Plain seltzer (optional)

  • Ice

Instructions:

  1. Combine one slice of lemon, mint leaves, 7 blueberries, cucumber slices, agave nectar and gin into a shaker. Muddle well. 

  2. Fill with ice and Shake vigorously for about 15-30 seconds.

  3. Prepare a small rocks glass filled with ice and pour shaker contents (minus the ice) over the ice in the glass.

  4. Top with plain seltzer (optional)

  5. Garnish with a slice of lemon, a sprig of mint, slice of cucumber, and remaining blueberries.

  6. Now we're talkin'.
