A super-thin slice of cucumber pressed against the glass adds an artistic twist to this refreshing cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice European cucumber, paper-thin, lengthwise; for garnish
  • Ice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill, finely chopped, plus 1 dill sprig, for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup (see Note) fresh cucumber juice
  • 1/4 cup club soda, chilled

How to Make It

  1. Press the cucumber slice against the inside of a chilled highball glass and add ice.

Strain into the prepared glass and stir in the club soda. Garnish with the dill sprig.
