Square One - New Cucumber Vodka

Check out Square One’s new cucumber vodka. Square One was started by Alison Evanow and based in my old stomping grounds, Novato, Ca. Square One is made from organic American rye using organic fermentation and distillation techniques.

I always think cucumber water is so refreshing….So, cucumber vodka should make a great summer cocktail right? How about Square One Cucumber and tonic with a twist of lime? Or try the following recipe for a cool summer sipper:


2 oz. Square One Cucumber
1 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz. organic Agave nectar
6 sprigs of fresh mint
Club Soda or Sparkling water
2-3 long, thin strips of cucumber slices

Layer cucumber slices and a couple of mint leaves with ice in a Collins glass. Muddle remaining mint lightly in a mixing glass or cocktail tin. Do not over bruise. Pour other ingredients in and shake briefly with a little ice just to blend. Strain into Collins glass and fill to desired level with soda water and stir briefly. Garnish with the remaining sprig of mint.

Happy Summer! Happy Sipping!
