How to Make It

1. Step
Make the mint simple syrup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, sugar, and roughly chopped mint leaves. Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, until the sugar is fully dissolved and the mint is fragrant. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Store remaining mint syrup in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
2. Step
In a cocktail shaker, combine the cucumber rounds, lime juice, whole mint leaves, and 1 tablespoon of the mint simple syrup. Muddle for 1-2 minutes, until the cucumber and mint have released their flavors, but are not mushy.
3. Step
Pour in the vodka and fill the shaker halfway with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
4. Step
Fill a Collins glass with ice and pour in the strained cocktail.
5. Step
Garnish with the cucumber ribbons.
6. Step
Enjoy!
