Ingredients

  • 4 slices cucumber (plus extra for garnish)

  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 oz. simple syrup (recipe below)

  • 2 oz. Fifty States Vodka

  • Mint, to garnish

  • Simple Syrup Ingredients
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup water

Directions

  • In the bottom of a glass, muddle cucumber slices, lemon juice, and simple syrup. If you don't have a muddler, the handle of a wooden spoon will work just fine.
  • Muddle until the cucumbers are a bit crushed and the juices have released.
  • Add Vodka and fill the glass with ice.
  • Top cocktail off with club soda.
  • Garnish with additional cucumber slice and mint.
  • Simple Syrup
  • Put sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Once mixture is boiling, lower heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes, until sugar has dissolved and mixture thickens.
  • Pour syrup into a heat-proof bowl or mason jar and place in fridge to let cool completely.
