Irish Maid Cocktail

I’ve gotten to become a fan of cucumber juice over time as it is a great way to bring a really fresh taste to any cocktail. I finally found a good way to extract a good quantity of juice and then I had to come up with some good ideas of what to mix it with. Then, I thought, why not whiskey. After putting whiskey + cucumber juice in Google I got a number of hits for an Irish Maid…never heard of it, but tried some combinations and became a believer. Here’s what I did, and it was lovely:

  • Knob Creek – 2oz
  • Cucumber Juice – 1oz
  • Mint Simple Syrup – 1/2oz (you can use a bunch of mint leaves and little sugar if you don’t have the time)
  • St. Germain – 1oz (this stuff is gangsta if you’ve never used it before and can almost replace using any sugar)
  • Juice of 1/2 a fresh squeezed lemon

Don’ get much better than this on a hot Summer afternoon or a cold Winter one for that matter!
