If you are not a huge fan of downing a green beer in honor of St. Patrick's Day, no worries! Here is a little green concoction for your St. Paddy's Day celebration:
Honeydew, Cucumber and Mint Mojito
**To make the garnish, cut a shamrock from a slice of cucumber skin using a shamrock cookie cutter.
Serves 1 (just double or triple, etc. for more servings)
1/4 lime wedge
2 sprigs fresh mint
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
1 cup crushed ice
3/4 cup fresh honeydew melon juice (from half of a melon)
Club soda (I used ginger ale), fresca, or Sprite
1 Tbsp rum (optional)
Cucumber skin "shamrock," for garnish
Place lime, mint, cucumber slices, and sugar in a tumbler or highball glass and muddle. Add ice to glass; pour honeydew melon juice over ice. Top with club soda or flavored carbonated drink. Stir and serve immediately garnished with cucumber "shamrock."
Now all you need is a little decoration:
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
