Join our Sip & Nibble: Cool as a Cucumber and you’ll get you cool as a cucumber with a refreshing bright green beverage. We call this cocktail the Cucumber Zinger. Why “Zinger?” From the chilies, of course! They’re entirely optional, but a dose of spicy optimism sure sounds good to us! With or without the chilies, the cucumber and lime ensure that the Cucumber Zinger is fresh and sassy.
Then, we’ll use the leftover cucumber from the cocktail and make Tzatziki. It’s a great little dip, perfect to enjoy with some veggies or pita chips and your cocktail. Tzatziki: so fun to say, so easy to make, so delicious to eat!
