The classic cucumber mint cocktail is a refreshing and crisp drink that's perfect for summertime sipping. This cocktail is believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, where it is a popular drink known as a "mojito de pepino." The cocktail has since made its way around the world and is now a staple on cocktail menus everywhere.
The combination of cucumber and mint creates a bright and herbaceous flavor, while lime juice adds a tangy twist. The addition of soda water gives the drink a light and effervescent finish, making it a perfect option for those who prefer a low-alcohol drink.
