When the weather is warmer and you are lazing in the sun, you want to keep your cocktails light and refreshing. For me, it's about using lovely bubbly mineral waters and refreshing garnishes.
Something as quick and simple as this Vodka Spritz with Cucumber is perfect in warm weather and looks like Summer in a glass to me. It's about using a good quality vodka to make this mix perfect.
shot of Belvedere vodka
several slices of cucumber
Pop all ingredients in a tall glass, combine well with a stirrer (this will bring out the cucumber intensity) and enjoy!
Things don't need to be complicated, keep the pace slow and easy!
