It's Friday everyone! (and by 'Friday' I mean FriYAY!)
This weekend looks like it's going to be a warm one, so why not chill out with some refreshing drinks? Today I've created a light, summery, fun shot for you and your friends* to enjoy together on this lovely June weekend (*or it could be just for you if you feel like taking 4 shots. I won't judge.).
Well, Ladies and Gents, I present to you- Cool As A Cucumber Shots!
COOL AS A CUCUMBER SHOTS
Servings: 4 shots
Time: 5 minutes
5 Fresh Mint Leaves
8 Thin Slices of Cucumber (approx. 1/8" thick each)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
3 oz Silver Tequila
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
Pinch of Iodized Salt
Ice for Shaking
Sprinkle some iodized salt on top of 4 cucumber slices and set aside.
In your cocktail shaker, muddle the fresh mint and remaining 4 cucumber slices.
Add the lime juice, tequila, simple syrup, and ice to your shaker and shake vigorously for 10 seconds.
Strain into 4 shot glasses and top with the salted cucumber.
HOW TO DRINK IT- Eat the salted cucumber first, then take the shot. Enjoy!
