Spotlight: Cool as a Cucumber Cocktail!

Cucumber in a cocktail isn’t exactly unheard of (remember Niki’s fabulous Pimms Cup!) but this one really caught my eye over at The Daily Spud.  And it’s got Gin and Tonic in it too!

Cucumber in a salad is one thing.

Cucumber in a cocktail, well now, that brings a whole new meaning to the term salad bar.

To be honest, potato milkshakes aside, my culinary experiments don’t normally extend to the beverage side of the house. Mixing drinks chez Spud, generally speaking, features a bottle of gin in one hand and a bottle of tonic in the other.

But I am learning that it doesn’t have to be that way.

…The result is what I have (rather grandly) christened the Cucumburt. It’s perhaps not as grand as all that, but it is refreshing all the same. It marries cucumber, yoghurt, ginger, mint and coriander, along with a measure of gin and tonic, because, let’s face it, those old mixing habits die hard.

Go get the recipe and read the whole thing!

This sounds delish… I may just have to go pick up some cucumbers!
