Ignore the fact that we’ve lost more than an hour of daylight each morning and evening already! Focus on soaking up these last sultry summer rays with a refreshing beverage in your coozy, pretending the leaves aren’t about to turn and ignoring the Santa counter (that insists there are only 16 weeks until Christmas). I have just the cocktail for the job! It features our new cucumber vodka from Prairie Organic Spirits, made here in Minnesota. We vomFASSified Prairie’s “Garden Variety” recipe from their website – we’re betting you’ll approve!
2 oz Prairie Cucumber Flavored Vodka
4 one-inch cubes of seedless watermelon
2 slices of lime (bitter ends removed)
1 oz FassMix Passion Fruit Syrup
vomFASS Basil Citrus Salt
Lightly salt the rim of a low-ball glass with Basil Citrus Salt. Add first four ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into salted glass. Garnish with a slice of cucumber and a lime wheel. Enjoy!
