As the summer heats up, we crave citrus-infused drinks to cool us down. Leave the lemonade stands to the kiddies and try this grown-up limeade.
Keri Glassman’s Limeade
2 ounces Bacardi Light Rum, or your favorite white spirit
1 handful chopped cucumber
1 handful sliced lime
1 tsp. agave nectar
12 fresh mint sprigs
4 to 6 ounces club soda
Gently muddle cucumber and limes in a pint glass. Add mint and agave nectar with a splash of club soda and gently muddle. Fill glass with shaved or crushed ice, add alcohol and gently stir. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig and cucumber wheel dusted with a pinch of rock salt.
