cucumber mint refresher

Now although this cocktail may not seem like something those of us in Southern California are thirsting for this very second. Especially, given the cloudy days and cooler than norm temps we’ve had for the past couple of weeks or months, it seems like.

We all know those warm temps will no doubt hit us before we know it. So, it’s best we be armed with the perfect cocktail to help quench our thirst throughout that heat wave, whenever it may hit us.

I am also pretty sure other parts of the country and the world for that matter, would more than welcome this cocktail right about now. Since the weather seems to be all out of whack.

So here we go… the perfect gin cocktail to help quench that summer thirst whenever it hits us.

If you already have a favorite summer thirst quenching cocktail please do share. One can never have enough summer cocktail recipes, ya know?

Cheers and happy Friday to you!
