Celebrate this weekend’s cocktail with An Afternoon of Blues at Central Phoenix bar the Windsor. From 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday, January 14 the bar will feature local blues musician Brian DeMarco, four special on-tap beers from Oskar Blues Brewery, upscale bar fare like MJ Pretzel Bread with Cheese Fondue and of course this weekend’s drink, the Cocktail No. 17, a cool cucumber-and-green-tea concoction. Blues and booze have always fit together nicely, and we think the Weekender is no exception.
2 oz Effen Cucumber Vodka
1 oz Green Tea Syrup (equal parts brewed green tea and sugar)
.5 oz Cucumber Juice
.75 oz Lime Juice
Tear mint into bottom of glass and add green tea syrup, cucumber and lime juice. Add Effen Cucumber Vodka and ice; shake and strain into glass. Garnish with a slice of fresh cucumber.
