This easy-to-make cucumber mint fizz cocktail is a refreshing blend of garden ingredients and champagne – another perfect drink to enjoy during these hot summer days.

Apparently, July is drink-experimenting month here at North Country Nest. We’ve got a constant rotation of new veggies and herbs that are sprouting from the garden and mixing together various drink combinations is a favorite past time.

Experimenting with cocktail concoctions is something I have always thoroughly enjoyed. During any given family gathering, I usually had my fair share of volunteers who were willing to put their taste buds to use and try out the newest drink. If it wasn’t the best, they would utter a few expletives about how I was trying to kill them off and then simultaneously choke it down. If it was a winner, we brainstormed a name and that mixture usually because the go-to summer drink.

The prestigious title of ‘Family Drink Maker’ soon followed and like any good professional, I took my job very seriously – and still do. Mastering the art of concocting cocktails comes with a hefty price tag and sometimes a lot of pressure. But hey, someone’s gotta do it. And now that we have fresh ingredients comin’ in hot from the garden, the combinations have grown tenfold.

Today’s specialty blend features a few more garden ingredients; this time swapping out the strawberries for fresh cucumbers, making the cucumber mint fizz cocktail.

If you’re not a cucumber fan, this one (obviously) isn’t for you. However, the flavor isn’t overpowering and the combination with mint really makes it extra-refreshing. I’m already thinking about how great a pitcher of these will taste mid-garage building. Last but not least, if you’re craving the fizz but want to skip the alcohol, try substituting soda water or tonic.
