I'll put it out there, I am not a hard alcohol drinker.  I usually stick to wine {and champagne!}, but this day I had a hankering for a fresh and cold cocktail.  Now I'm no professional mixologist or anything and I'm sure I'm not the first one to combine these ingredients, but I threw what I had in the fridge in a glass and this is how it ended up.  Enjoy : )

0001Cucumber Mint Cocktail

Serves 1

What you'll need:

4-5 mint leaves

3 slices of cucumber

about a 1/4 tsp. agave nectar (or a pinch of sugar)

1 shot of vodka

club soda

Ice cubes

What you'll do:

In a short glass, place the mint, cucumber and agave nectar or sugar in and muddle.  Basically mix up with the back of a spoon if you don't have fancy pants muddler.  Add a few ice cubes then pour in the vodka and fill the rest of the glass with club soda.  Gently stir, garnish with a slice of cucumber and serve.
