Tips for a Refreshing Cucumber Mojito

  • Be sure to add the mint leaves at the bottom when muddling, under the cucumber and lime wedges – with the pulp up. This way, you avoid beating up the mint and lime peel too much, which makes your cocktail bitter.
  • You will want to remove the lime pith to avoid bitterness.
  • Limes with thin, smooth skin are the juiciest.
