Describe the taste.

Refreshing, minty and juicy. It makes you feel like you are vacation when you drink it!

What's the key component of this drink?

Muddling all the fresh mint, cucumber, lime juice and simple syrup. All the flavors really compliment each other to make this well balanced cocktail.

What reactions do you get from customers when they try this cocktail for the first time?

I always recommend this drink because it's my personal favorite. Guests LOVE it, and can never order just 1. I think they are surprised by the taste because the ingredients can sound a little random.

If you had to pair this cocktail with a dish, what would you pair it with?

It goes well with everything, but if I had to pick one I would pair it with the Ahi Tuna Tostada or anything with Ahi Tuna.
