Spring has a way of transforming spirits from low to high. The sun is out longer, flowers begin to bloom, birds begin to sing. The air may still have a faint crisp to its breeze but we all are excited in our pastels for the warm weather to come. We also take the time to get ready for summer. With that, we turn to healthy eats and veggie delights. We love Coastal Living‘s advice in adding fresh-pressed juice to your favorite springtime cocktail. The Thai Cucumber Collins offers a refreshing flavor and leaves you feeling good! There is even a hint of lemongrass – a garden-fresh way to spice-up your cocktail list!
4 fresh mint leaves
3 sugar cubes
2 (¼-inch) cucumber slices
1 teaspoon grated (on a Microplane) lemongrass
6 tablespoons fresh-pressed cucumber juice
1/4 cup (2 oz.) white rum
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
6 tablespoons club soda
Cucumber slices and mint leaves, for garnish
Muddle mint leaves, sugar cubes, cucumber slices, and grated lemongrass in a cocktail shaker. Add fresh-pressed cucumber juice, white rum, and fresh lime juice. Swirl to combine. Add ice, cover with lid, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with cucumber slices and mint leaves, if desired
Take the FREE and start planning a wedding that feels uniquely you.
The truth is I hated planning my own wedding. I felt like I was going it alone and was surprised by how hard it was to find partners who embraced my vision. Thankfully, the guy was worth it and that experience is what led me to become a wedding planner. After a decade of planning luxury weddings I am bringing my process to you.
