Sweet Diane

"This is Diane's favorite. Everyday this lighthearted cocktail awaits her when she's done with her work."

This cocktail is perfect for a sunny afternoon on the porch. I like to use all organic ingredients where possible. Try to find a local wildflower honey, that way you also work on your immune system while you're enjoying this delicious drink. We have a lemon tree, so I feel spoiled, but if you can get your hands on some meyer lemons it will enrich the flavor.

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients:

6 mint leaves

1 tbsp local wildflower honey

2 slices of cucumber

1oz lemon juice

1 1/2 oz  Vodka, I prefer the cucumber & mint from the botanical Ketel One

1/2 oz triple sec

1/2 cup of ice

 

1  Put the mint leaves, cucumber slices, honey, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Crush the leaves and slices so the flavors mix well.

2  Add the rest of the ingredients.

3  Shake until cool throughout.

4  Pour into a glass and garnish with some cucumber, lemon, and mint.
