Summer Libation Series 2010: Square One Organic Cucumber Vodka
Founding Farmer's eco-friendly restaurant in DC is one of the few places that features a cocktail using Square One Organic Vodka. Their Cucumber Delight is garnished with a cucumber wheel and two perfect honeydew and canteloupe spheres.
If you're like me and don't have the appropriate bartools to scoop perfect balls of melon into your collins glasses then try this recipe:
2 oz. Square One Cucumber
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. of powdered sugar
1 cucumber wheel and mint sprig for garnish
Combine ingredients in a cocktail tin and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into a glass, fill glass to top with club soda, stir once and garnish with a cucumber wheel and a mint sprig.
