Cucumber Cleanse

 
 
Hop on the juice-cleanse train without giving up your booze, thanks to this cocktail. Fresh cucumber and lemon juices are jazzed up with a splash of vodka. *Ginger syrup adds zing, and hibiscus lavender oak bitters bring a layer of floral depth. Top it all with a little bit of ground cayenne for some extra spice.
 
 

Ingredients

 

Steps

1.    Add all ingredients into a shaker and dry-shake (without ice) until frothy.
2.   Add ice and shake again until well-chilled.
3.    Strain into a cocktail glass.
4.    Garnish with a sprinkle of ground cayenne.

*Ginger syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to boil in small saucepan. Add 4 oz peeled ginger cut into thin rounds (about a 10-inch long piece). Remove from heat and allow to steep for 30 minutes, then strain out solids. Store in refrigerator up to several weeks.
