This shooter can be served as a cocktail or as an hors d’oeuvre at a cocktail party. It’s on the border between sweet and savory, so it can even be enjoyed as an after-dinner cocktail. —MizChef

What You'll Need
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • 1 mango, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup melon liqueur
  • 4 mint sprigs (optional)
  1. 1. Place the cucumber, mango, mint, maple syrup, and lime juice in a food processor or blender. Process until fully pureed.
  2. 2. Set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Pour the mixture into the strainer and let it drip through. Press down on the pulp with a rubber spatula to strain as much liquid out as possible. Whisk in the liqueur.
  3. 3. Pour into shot glasses, top with mint sprig, and serve.
