Since we're in the middle of a heatwave here in LA, this drink is on the menu all weekend long. This sparkling cucumber mint gin is the ideal cocktail to sip outside during these hot summer nights as you wait for the sun to set and the sky to turn orange.
This brisk, refreshing smash is found in the Farm-to-Glass section of "The New Cocktail Hour" (Running Press, 2016). It's created by Jörg Meyer of Le Lion Bar in Hamburg, Germany. The book's authors, André and Tenaya Darlington, suggest setting up a table where guests can choose their own herbs to muddle in this herbaceous drink.
