How to Use Cucumber in a Rum Cocktail

CucumberThis comes to us from the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa in Jupiter, Fla. and the property’s signature Sinclair’s Lounge.

While you may be familiar with gin-based cocktails utilizing cucumber, it works quite well with rum, too, making for a refreshing, crisp cocktail.

Here’s the recipe for the resort’s Cucumber Breeze.

Ingredients:

2oz Bacardi Rum
2oz Simple syrup
Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
Splash of Pineapple Juice
2oz Peeled cucumber

Method:

Muddle the cucumber with the simple syrup, add the remaining ingredients, shake well, then strain over ice. Add a splash of sprite.

Cheers!
