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!
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
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cucumber wheels until crushed. Add the mint and just muddle but do not bruise.
- 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.
- Garnish with spiralized cucumber.
