Sanchez Brothers Cucumber Mojito

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

John and Paul Sanchez grow year round hothouse cucumbers on 1 ½ acres in Carpinteria just south of Santa Barbara. 

Serves 2

6  peeled cucumber slices
6 lime slices
20 mint leaves
2 tablespoons agave syrup
4 ounces of vodka
Tonic water

Muddle 4 of the lime slices and mint leaves together in a shaker.  Add the cucumber slices and muddle once more. Add the agave syrup, vodka and a few splashes of tonic water.  Fill the shaker with ice and shake it good for about 30 seconds. Pour strained cocktail over 2 glasses of ice. Fill to the top with tonic water and gently stir. Garnish each glass with a lime and cucumber slice.

This drink is also outstanding without the alcohol. Just add more tonic or sparkling water and enjoy.

“The cucumbers mixed with agave taste like sweet melons. Enjoy this drink after a long hard day!”- John Sanchez
