How to Make a Mint-Cucumber Mojito

by Phillip Maddox

Summer isn't gone yet and I've got some cucumbers from my garden that were looking for a creative use. Enter Blue Chair Bay coconut rum and some other goodies.

Supplies

  • 2 oz white rum
  • 4 lime quarters
  • 2 sprigs mint
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 slices cucumber
  • 4 oz club soda
  • Ice
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Squeeze all of the lime quarters into your glass. (Highball is called for but I'm not that fancy). Add sugar and mint sprigs then muddle with a spoon back.

    Step 2

    Add cucumber slices, rum and top off with ice and club soda.

    Step 3

    Enjoy that bad boy and don't let anyone tell you you're too manly to have a mojito.
