To all my Tuesday Vinglers, who are still looking for something to satisfy your thirst, I'd love for you to consider the Bluecumber Sparkler, which is a blueberry and cucumber beverage of delight. Just look at how clear and crisp-looking that drink is.
And did you notice the etched glass that it's in?
Probably a mould, but one can dream of real Bohemian Czech cut crystal glasses....
Ingredients (for one glass)
juice of 1/2 lime
1 1/2 oz. gin
3/4 oz. simple syrup
In a tall glass combine gin and simple syrup. Add ice, and club soda. Squeeze the juice of half a lime. Mix with a long spoon or straw. Garnish with fresh blueberries and cucumber slices. I love my drinks sweet, but always taste the drink first before you add more sugar (sweetener) to the drink. At some point it should taste like an adult beverage and not a glass of spiked Kool-aid!
