Cucumber Daiquiri
Cocktail Talk:

Using cucumber in a cocktail is a great way to make a refreshing beverage. This cocktail takes the typical daiquiri in a different direction and gives you something complex and drinkable.

Rhum Agricole is made from freshly squeezed sugar cane juice instead of molasses like most other rums. This method gives it a unique grassy flavor that works so well in combination with the cucumber. If you don't have Rhum Agricole on hand and don't want to grab a bottle, any other white rum would work great here too.
