This green tea cucumber cocktail will go down smoothly—it’s light rather than pungent or harsh like many signature cocktail recipes out there!

We made a cucumber simple syrup for this cocktail. Then we combined it with fresh brewed green tea, rum, a little lime and muddled mint! It also tastes really good without the rum if you are looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic version!

This recipe yields enough for a pitcher, making it the perfect party cocktail and friends can help themselves!
