I can't seem to get good lighting in this place. The actual color of the drink was somewhere between the light yellowish-green in the first picture and the ugly muddy green in the second one. For some reason the camera refused to capture the sexiness of this awesome cocktail.
Inspired by eos's Cool Cucumber, but mine tastes better and doesn't cost $12.
1/4-1/2 cup cucumber juice
2-3 oz vodka
2 oz white grape juice (or simple syrup)
lime-flavored sparkling water
Fill a tall glass halfway with ice. Add cucumber juice, vodka, and grape juice, and top up with sparkling water. Garnish with a slice of cucumber.
Use less cucumber juice if you're not that into cucumber; use more vodka if you're a boozer.
