Green Whale Cocktail Recipe

Looking for a refreshing and vibrant cocktail to enjoy on a warm summer evening? Look no further than the Green Whale cocktail. This crisp and invigorating drink will transport you to the tropics with its vibrant green color and tropical flavors.

To make the Green Whale, you'll need a few key ingredients and some basic bartending skills. This cocktail combines the refreshing taste of cucumber, the tangy sweetness of lime, and the herbaceous notes of mint for a truly delightful drink.

To start, gather your ingredients. You'll need fresh cucumber, lime juice, mint leaves, simple syrup, and your choice of vodka or gin. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, you can substitute the alcohol with soda water or tonic water.

Once you have all your ingredients ready, begin by muddling a few slices of cucumber and a handful of fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Muddling is the process of gently crushing the ingredients to release their flavors.

Next, add a generous squeeze of lime juice and a splash of simple syrup to the cocktail shaker. Simple syrup is a mixture of equal parts sugar and water, dissolved together to create a sweet syrupy liquid.

If you're using alcohol, now is the time to add a shot or two of vodka or gin to the shaker. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, skip this step and proceed to the next one.

Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds to chill the ingredients and mix them together. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass, removing any cucumber or mint leaves that may have been muddled.

For an extra touch of elegance, you can garnish your Green Whale cocktail with a slice of cucumber or a sprig of fresh mint. Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing flavors of this tropical delight.

Whether you're hosting a summer party or simply want to enjoy a delicious cocktail on your own, the Green Whale is a fantastic choice. Its bright green color and refreshing taste will transport you to a tropical paradise with every sip.

Best served in a Collins Glass.
