Screaming Viking

June 10, 2010

Author Notes: This cocktail is based on the recipe that Norm came up with to get rid of the new Bartender that had taken Woddy's place on "Cheers". The actual recipe is undrinkable so I took Norm's lead and ran with it while somewhat bruising the cucumber -Cheers ! - jimmytheseekerjimmytheseeker

Food52 Review: Jimmytheseeker offers a refreshing summer cocktail that smoothes out the rough edges from a long afternoon of cooking. The cucumber and mint flavors cool everything down, and the sweet touch of agave nectar softens the sharpness of the rum. We both thought the drink's taste improved after the mint and cuke had "rested" in the glass for a bit. I might make up the cocktails, minus the ice, refrigerate them for 15 minutes before guests arrive, then add the ice just before serving. Delicious! - LizthechefThe Editors
