Square One Organic Vodka / it’s hip to be square

This company goes organic all the way with their production methods, right down to the label made from bamboo. Square One Vodka is made from organic rye, and because of its minimal processing, the by-product can be sold to local dairy farms. Allison Evanow, the company’s founder, found inspiration from the cucumber water offered at many spas and is introducing this cucumber flavored vodka. Enjoy the refreshing essence of cucumber with the real thing in this twist on the traditional mojito:

Cucumber Mojito
6 sprigs of fresh mint
1 tbsp. organic agave nectar
3 tbsp. cucumber (preferably English), peeled and diced
1 lime, halved and juiced with 1 half reserved
2 oz. Square One Cucumber
club soda or sparkling water
Remove leaves from 5 sprigs of mint and place them in a cocktail shaker with agave nectar, cucumber and lime juice. Muddle with a wooden spoon or muddler for at least 30 seconds. Strain the liquid into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Add the vodka and the lime half and stir. Fill glass to desired level with soda water. Garnish with the remaining sprig of mint.
