Daiquiri Time !!

     Today I stumbled on an idea for a new daiquiri.   I keep hearing about cucumber this and cucumber that, so I worked out an idea for cucumber in a daiquiri.

      Cucumber adds a subtle flavor to the cocktail that I like when making a cocktail.  The daiquiri lends itself perfectly to the making of this type of cocktail.  Fwaygo Rum is a new rum made in Fort Lauderdale and fits the bill perfectly with its clean taste.   Anyway, this is another fun and flavorful patio cocktail for you to try.

Cucumber Daiquiri
  • 1 1/2 oz. Fwaygo Hand Crafted Rum
  • 5 Slices Cucumber
  • Juice of ½ Lime
  • 4 oz. Tonic Water
  • 4 Mint Leaves
  • ¼ oz. Agave Nectar

 place  2 mint leaves, lime juice, 2 slices cucumber, rum and agave nectar into a shaker and muddle.   Add ice and 2 cucumber slices to shaker and shake until chilled.    allow to sit for a couple of minutes and Strain mixture into a chilled cocktail glass and top with tonic water and garnish with cucumber and float a couple of mint leaves on the surface.
     This should quench your thirst for something different on the patio this summer.  ;o)
