Drinking In the Herd
The patios, the views, the food and drink — Happiest Hour in the HARWOOD District has it all, including your new favorite summer cocktail.
Called the Stars Green Envy, it's a refreshing blend of cucumber, lime, and mint, and bartender Daniel Le is here to share how it's made.
Watch him expertly prepare the pretty drink — which sounds as revitalizing as a trip to the spa — and then head over to Happiest Hour to sip on one in person. Because don't cocktails always taste better when someone else is making them for you?
Stars Green Envy
2 oz. cucumber vodka
1 oz. simple syrup

Add a few cucumber slices and ice to the glass.
Slap the mint to extract its oils, then muddle it gently inside a cocktail shaker.

Pour into the glass and top with spiralized cucumber, then serve.
