Cocktail Hour: The Presser Foot

Hi there!  This month’s beverage is basically a variation on a Mojito, but we’ve added some cucumber simple syrup.
It’s called the Presser Foot because of the muddling!

Ingredients:

Good white rum
Cucumber infused simple syrup
Fresh mint
Limes
Persian cucumbers
Club Soda
sugar

Make the simple syrup:  we bought basic simple syrup like this:

simplesyrup

Bring 1 cup of it to a boil on the stove and then add one peeled and chopped persian cucumber.  Strain out the cucumber. Let it cool and then chill in the fridge.

Put about 10 mint leaves and 1 or 2 slices of lime in the bottom of each glass and muddle them up.

      Hi Margaret! It’s actually not super sweet which is why we added some sugar. You can try it without and then add the sugar only if you feel it needs it. And do you mean the camper pincushion? Lisa Alexakis made it for me! Isn’t it amazing? It looks just like my camper!

  2. Love the photos!

  3. Great pictures, Lauren! The drink looks yummy.

  6. Cheers! – love both campers!
