Happy Friday!! If you are looking for a delicious and refreshing cocktail, try this amazing Cucumber Smash! The fresh pureed cucumber combined with the cucumber vodka, lime, and mint hits all the right spots! This drink is not sweet, which I love..however, if you would like it to be a little sweeter you can add 1/8 teaspoon of honey. Serve over ice and enjoy! Cheers!!!
