What’s a girl got to do to get a drink on Easter Sunday?
The pretty pink hue and bright flavors make this cocktail perfect for spring. It actually felt really festive and appropriate to be drinking them on Easter. My mother-in-law and I both loved these so much, we might have had two.
- 1 cucumber
- 1 3/4 cups grapefruit juice (preferably fresh squeezed)
- 3/4-1 cup silver tequila (depending on how strong you want your drinks)
- 2 limes
- Club soda
- Slice four wheels from the cucumber and set aside (you'll use these to garnish the drinks). Peel the rest of the cucumber, cut it into chunks, and transfer to a food processor. Process until pureed. Pour through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl. Measure out 1/4 cup cucumber juice. Discard remaining cucumber juice and solids.
- Pour the 1/4 cup cucumber juice into a pitcher. Add the grapefruit juice, tequila, and the juice of 1 lime. Fill 4 glasses with ice. Divide the drink between the glasses and top with club soda. Slice the remaining lime into wedges and garnish each drink with a lime wedge and a cucumber wheel.
