Tyler Place's Latest "From the Garden" Cocktail. You'll need: 2 oz vodka, cucumber, fresh mint, 1/2 oz Sapling Maple Liqueur (or Vermont Maple Syrup), 2 oz soda water, and 2 oz Sprite. Muddle liberal amounts of mint and chopped cucumber with the Maple liqueur in a cocktail glass. Pack glass with ice, and pour in vodka, soda, and sprite. Don't shake, but do pour back and forth between two glasses. Garnish with a cucumber slice & enjoy!
