There’s something about Friday that calls for a stronger drink. After a long and hectic work week, we like to get right to the point. At 5:00 the lap top will shut down, the work emails will go unchecked (for a few hours at least), the heels will come off and yes, the hair will be let down.
Cucumber Thyme Vodka Cocktail
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces dry cucumber soda (from Whole Foods)
¼ ounce lemon juice
¼ sprig thyme
Directions: Muddle the thyme, cucumber, and vodka. Strain the liquid into a martini shaker, then add the lemon juice and ice. Shake well and pour over ice. Add the soda and garnishes.
