Cool Hand Luke Cocktail

This cooling green tea /cucumber cocktail is the perfect refreshing cocktail for hot summer days.

Make a cucumber simple syrup for this cocktail. Then combine it with (cold - brew) COOL HAND LUKE tea, rum, a little lime and muddled mint.

Add lots of ice cubes and garnish with cucumbers and sprigs of fresh mint.

It also tastes really good without the rum if you are looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic version!
