Cocktail Recipe: Cucumber Mojito

Chris loves playing bartender and I'm glad he does...because he's good at it. He makes my all-time favorite Bacon Bloody Mary, and is also the creator of this amazing White Riesling Sangria. His most recent concoction? A cucumber mojito. I'll admit I was a little hesitant when I first tasted it. I think I'm used to having overly sweet cocktails, and this is anything but that. But after a second sip, I was in love. It's crisp, refreshing and light. A perfect cocktail for a hot summer evening. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 750 ml white rum
  • 2 cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 cup mint, coarsely chopped
  • Club soda, for serving

Directions:

  1. Start by making the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine cooled simple syrup, rum, cucumbers and mint. Allow to chill for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  3. When serving, pour into glasses and top with a splash of club soda.
