Cucumber? Raspberry? Yes, please. Before you're put off by the uber-cutesy name, give this a try — we wouldn't have posted it if it didn't look delicious.
Cucumber Yum Yum Cocktail
— recipe via Epicurious
At 1105, a bar in Copenhagen, juniper-inflected gin is paired with caraway-flavored aquavit, Scandinavia's traditional eau-de-vie.
Using muddler or handle of wooden spoon, mash 10 cucumber slices and 8 raspberries in cocktail shaker. Add gin, honey, aquavit, and lime juice. Shake vigorously 20 times. Fill 2 old-fashioned glasses with crushed ice. Strain cucumber mixture into glasses, dividing equally. Garnish each drink with 1 cucumber slice and 1 raspberry and serve.
