I had to take this picture of a cocktail for a magazine. After I shot the picture, I had to drink this! It was so delicious and refreshing on this very hot day. So, here it is...
1 strawberry cut into pieces
4 to 6 small pieces of cucumber
1/2 oz of agave syrup (found in specialty stores)
1/2 oz of lemon juice
1 1/2 oz of Grand Marnier
1 oz white cranberry juice
Mash the strawberries and cucumbers together with the agave syrup and the lemon juice. Pour this mixture into a shaker add Grand Marnier and 4 to 6 ice cubes. Shake it up. Pour in a martini glass and add the white cranberry juice. Drop a brochette of strawberry and cucumber in the martini before serving.
(I didn't purchase the Grand Marnier, it was too expensive, instead I used Brandy.)
