Cucumber Rickey

We don’t think there is much better than Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Especially when you mix that ginger beer with ingredients as refreshing as Cucumber, Mint, Lime & Gin! This cocktail is an adaptation from the Shake Cocktail book by Eric Prum & Josh Williams – written in Brooklyn. We got this book a few Christmases ago from our Cousin and his wife and we pretty much spent the whole holiday making new cocktails from the book. The Cucumber Rickey has to be a summer favorite though!! So refreshing and delicious! Let us know how it is on your next day off!
