Cocktail of the Week: Refreshmint

Looking to sip on something light? Well, then the Refreshmint cocktail is exactly what you need! This drink is a simple and — you guessed it — refreshing libation that perfectly showcases the iconic flavors of cucumber, mint and lime.


  • 0.5 Cup Diced Cucumber
  • 1 oz. Mint Simple Syrup
  • 1.5 oz. Gin
  • 0.5 oz. Saint Germain
  • 0.5 oz. Lime Juice


  1. Add cucumber and mint simple syrup into a cocktail shaker and muddle.
  2. Add all other ingredients to the shaker, top with ice and shake until chilled.
  3. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice and garnish with lime and mint.
