The cucumber mojito cocktail is a refreshing and minty beverage that’s perfect for warm summer days. Its more traditional cousin. the classic mojito, is a Cuban highball that consists of rum, sugar, lime juice, soda and mint. The sugar and mint are gently muddled together so that the bruised mint leaves release their essential oils. Then the rum and lime juice are added to dissolve the sugar.
The combination of citrus, sweetness and herbs is wonderfully refreshing but we’ve gone a step further by adding cool, crisp cucumber juice to the mix. We serve it over plenty of ice, extra mint and lime wedges for the ultimate long, cool sipper. This one is not to be missed so break out your muddler and enjoy!Print
