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? :)
