It all started with a drink...

While out to dinner with a friend last night I discovered a delicious new drink for those hot and humid summer days. The restaurant called it a Cucumber Collins but thanks to a little online research I discovered that it is a re imagined version of the original gin and crushed cucumber delight. 

The version I fell in love with uses a cucumber-lime vodka to accompany the fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and club soda. It was light and refreshing with that little bit of zing you want on a hot day. I'm sure that it wouldn't be hard to make a non-alcholoic version as well by making a cucumber-infused simple syrup as a substitute for the vodka.
