Spicy cucumber yuzu mocktail
Jan 15 2021
Makes 2 cocktails
I am still in full mode dry January. To make it fun I am trying out a bunch of cocktails, I only share the most easy ones and this passed the test!! Yzu juice is a sweet kind of lemon but not easy to find, so you can use limes instead.
Blend together the cucumber, water, yuzu and maple syrup until smooth. I did it in a traditional bender but next time I will use my Vitamix for sure ( I think it works better at totally combining ingredients). You can (or not) strain the liquid so it is super smooth and there is no chunks, I did not do that and really enjoyed it.
Add in a shaker with the jalapeño and fresh basil and shake. Pour into 2 glasses top with sprinkling water and ice and enjoy!
