cucumber/mint/cilantro cocktail with sugar ice

IMG_6907i love a good cocktail menu and i love how fancy and trendy bars are getting these days. i was certainly getting sick of the old whiskey and ginger, so when i see a fancy drink with egg whites- i am sold!!! i don’t make or drink enough cocktails. i tend to be more of a social drinker. i also tend to be glued to the couch the day after.

for this speciality cocktail i made sugar ice cubes. they slowly melt into the drink so, by the end you get all this sugary goodness. the cucumber is refreshing, the cilantro and mint packed full of flavor. this green cocktail, might just be good for you? well, that is debatable.

for the ice cubes. boil one cup of water and one cup of sugar together until the sugar dissolves. let it cool a bit and pour into ice cube trays. i added a small piece of cucumber too to make em pretty.

add a shot (or two or three) of vodka.

you can also add club soda for some fizz!

add the ice cubes. i did two for extra sugary goodness! garnish as you wish. enjoy!
