Try Something New: Cucumber Caipiroska

I have always been a fan of the Caipiroska, a Caipirinha with vodka rather than cachaca. Made with vodka, fresh lime, and sugar, a Caipiroska is a sweeter version of a vodka gimlet. It is very suited to a warm summer day. I found this idea over at Thinking Of Drinking, a Chicago based cocktail blog. I will be stopping by the Flagler Farmer's Market on Friday morning, so ask me for one this weekend!

Cucumber Caipiroska

2 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Simple Syrup
4-5 lime wedges
4 cucumber wheels
2 sprigs Oregano

Muddle lime, 3 cucumber wheels, one sprig of oregano and syrup. Add vodka, then add ice and shake with ice. Pour shaker contents into glass, garnish with remaining cucumber wheel and sprig.
