The French Horse. Interesting cocktail name. Even more interesting cocktail. Mint meets cucumber meets lime meets vodka. They all walk in a bar. What could go wrong? Absolutely nothing. First we created a Marrakesh Mint simple syrup, blitzed up a cucumber and shook it up with vodka and lime. This cool refreshment is our new summertime sip. While the name makes no sense, the drink is 100% sensible.
|1 oz lime juice (about the juice of 1 small lime)|
|1 cucumber, peeled|
|1 oz vodka|
|1.||First, create the Marrakesh Mint simple syrup. Steep 1 heaping tsp Marrakesh Mint in a cup of near-boiling water. Steep for 5 mins. Strain off leaves. Pour the 1 cup hot tea into a pot with 1 cup water. Cook over low until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture thickens slightly. About 5 mins. Cool the simple syrup and set aside.|
|2.||Pour into a small rocks glass. Delicious cold and straight up or on the rocks.|
|3.||Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in 1 oz vodka, 1 oz cucumber juice, 2 oz Marrkesh Mint simple syrup and 1 oz lime juice. Shake.|
