As I'm convinced that the malevolent Ehec germ lives neither in spanish cucumbers nor in our regional vegetables, I fancied trying a cocktail with fresh cucumbers. The Intro To Awesome Punch has been created by Jane Danger, head bartender at Cienfuegos, a spin-off from the owners of Death and Co., a cocktailbar located in the East Village of Manhattan.
The Punch mixes best while listening to this music
How to mix:
1 1/2 parts dry white Rum
1 part Aperol
1part fresh lime juice
1/2 part sugar syrup
3 cucumber wheels
Muddle the cucumber wheels and sugar syrup in a mixing glass. Add rum, Aperol and lime juice. Shake and strain over ice into a cocktail glass. Top with soda and a pinch of salt (I prefer it without salt..). Garnish with a cucumber wheel.
We tried it with soda and without, on icecubes and without. It's always AWESOME!
