Fresh Cucumber Foretaste

Author Notes

I created this drink for a large dinner party, and couldn't refill glasses fast enough! It's really simple, refreshing, and a great start to a meal-I served it in small shot glasses with the hors d'oeuvres. Feel free to add a splash of really good vodka or Bacardi to this one, to make it an 'adult beverage'. —Mariya
