Cucumber Jalapeno Cooler for St. Patricks Day

I've been seeing green these last few days! My excitement for this trip to Savannah keeps building. Today I have another green cocktail for you. Like I said yesterday, I have truly enjoyed challenging myself this year while coming up with cocktails for St. Patricks day. This cucumber Jalapeno Cooler has a giant KICK to it. Maybe next time I will de-seed my jalapeno before muddling. Or maybe I won't. I like to live life on the edge! 

Ingredients

2-4 cucumber slices

1/2 a jalapeno

2 oz gin

Splash of Midori

Champagne to top

Method

In a shaker muddle your cucumber and jalapeno with your gin. Add ice shake well. Pour into a glass and top with champagne. Add a splash of Midori (the melon flavor helps to cool down the heat from the jalapeno) and top with champagne. 

Don't forget to check out my tips on surviving St. Patricks Day and the other two St. Patricks day cocktails: Lime sorbet float and kiwi mojito! AND the three green cocktails I made for last year's St. Patricks day!

Cheers!
