Cheers! Cucumber Mojito

It's been a long week around here. So amen to the weekend! One of my favorite drinks to celebrate are the Cucumber Mojitos at BYO Studio Lounge in Bay View. It's a perfect cap off to a long, hot summer day (and week!). I made one tonight after getting the drink recipe from Ken at BYO.

Here's the recipe and instructions from Ken.....

BYO Studio's Cucumber Mojito is a simple recipe, but consistency is key. Too much or too little and it will taste flat or watered down. It should taste like "Summer in a Glass". Here is the recipe for our Cucumber Mojitos:

1.5 oz white rum
3/4 oz housemade simple syrup
6-10 Mint leaves
3 lime wedges
2 slices of partially peeled cucumber.

Firmly muddle limes, simple syrup and mint leaves in bottom of glass. Add cucumbers and press firmly, but not overly. Add ice and rum. Shake vigorously. Fill with Club Soda. Pour into shaker and back once. Garnish with mint leaves or cucumber. Drink. Repeat.

BYO Studio Lounge is an art gallery with bar and lounge in Bay View. On Sundays, there are free salsa lessons. They also have rotating exhibits and art classes. See their website here.
