Gluten Free Spatini Cocktail Recipe
Ever been to a spa? I have and I love them! They are serene, quiet, and people pamper you – what’s not to love?
This Gluten Free Spatini Cocktail recipe is inspired by some of my favorite spa trips. It has a clean, refreshing taste and you know how spas always have those pitchers of water with cucumber and citrus slices? Well, this cocktail could replace that cucumber citrus water. Assuming that spas let you replace water with gin (which would pretty much make it the best spa ever!)
The Spatini is simplicity itself, just really great gin (I like Hendricks, small handcrafted gin infused with cucumber and roses, so spa-like already), freshly squeezed lime juice (from a lime, not a green plastic bottle), organic blue agave (I like Wholesome Sweeteners) and cucumbers. English or seedless cucumbers are preferred but since this cocktail is supposed to give you a chilled out spa-like feeling, don’t stress over it if you can only find the kind with seeds. Oh, peel the cucumbers with a vegetable peeler and save the peels, they make for a cool garnish when you tread on a skewer.
Next time you are looking for a cocktail that puts you in your Zen place, try this one.
- 5 1 inch long pieces of peeled cucumber
- 1 ounce Wholesome Sweeteners organic blue agave
- 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2.5 ounces Hendricks gin
Place the cucumber, agave, and lime juice in a blender and blend until the cucumber is fully pureed. Strain into a cocktail shaker. Add the gin and a big handful of ice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a piece of cucumber peel threaded on a toothpick or skewer.
