The Old Maid

IMG_6228

When my sister was planning to visit I knew she’d be perfect for the guest mixologist spot during my weekly episode of Cocktails with Colleen! I asked her to pick a recipe and she said she wanted to make the Old Maid, assuring me that it had nothing to do with the fact that I’ll be turning 50 in about a month!

Of course we had a great time making the video as you can see on my YouTube channel!

Not only was it fun to make together, but it was really tasty as well! I can see this becoming a staple in our house as we lounge around our pool next summer!

Old Maid
Serves 2

4 oz gin
2 oz fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz simple syrup
6 cucumber wheels (cut ¼-inch thick)
6-7 mint leaves
Cucumber spirals for garnish

  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cucumber wheels until crushed. Add the mint and just muddle but do not bruise.
  2. Add the gin, lime juice and simple syrup. Fill with ice to the line and shake. Remove the top shaker and strain into a glass filled with one large ice cube.
  3. Garnish with spiralized cucumber.

Enjoy!
