On The Rocks: Green Machine

I just LOVE cucumber in my cocktails! It offers such a freshness and is so darn pretty. This lovely libation incorporates all things green and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Enjoy!


1 1/2 shot of silver tequila

Homemade cucumber sweet n’ sour (directions below)

Pureed honeydew


Fresh mint


*Muddle mint and lime wedge in a martini shaker. Add a spoonful of pureed honeydew, tequila, a heavy splash of the cucumber sweet n’ sour, and a small splash of soda. Shake well and serve on the rocks.

Homemade Cucumber Sweet n’ Sour


1 Cup simple syrup

2 Cups bottled lemon juice

2-4 pureed cucumbers (I left the skin on)

Add all ingredients in a pitcher, strain and refrigerate. Make it skinny by subbing raw Stevia for the sugar in your simple syrup. And to see even more On the Rocks cocktail ideas they’re right here.
