Thinking of Drinking: Cucumber Cooler

Sip into the summer with this cocktail from Legal Sea Foods' Patrick Sullivan.

3 slices of cucumber (skin on)
1 ½ oz lime cordial (equal parts fresh lime juice and simple syrup)
Pinch Kosher salt
1 ½ oz Rain Organic Vodka
2 dashes Fee Brothers grapefruit bitters
1 oz Lemon Lime Soda

Muddle cucumbers, lime cordial and salt in a mixing glass. Add vodka, bitters and ice. Top with a metal tin shaker and shake hard.  Strain into a Highball glass over ice. Top with lemon lime soda.  Garnish with a slice of cucumber.

Simple Syrup:
Take equal parts water and sugar and stir to dissolve sugar.
