Ingredients
  • For the Cucumber Simple Syrup
  • 1 medium (2 cups) cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • For the Cocktail
  • 1½ ounces Hangar 1 Vodka
  • ¾ ounce Aperol
  • ½ ounce Lillet Blanc
  • ¼ ounce cucumber simple syrup
  • ¼ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist, for garnish
Directions
  1. Make the cucumber simple syrup: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cucumber and sugar and let sit for 1 hour to release the juices from the cucumber. Add the water and toss. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge overnight. Strain the simple syrup through a fine-mesh strainer and set aside. Discard the cucumber. Makes 2 cups.
  2. Make the cocktail: In a cocktail shaker, combine the Hangar 1 Vodka, Aperol, Lillet Blanc, cucumber syrup and lemon juice. Add the ice and stir for 20 to 30 seconds or until the shaker is frosty. Strain into a ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
