Ok, so we know it's only spring, but time flies, and summer is right around the corner. And you know what that means, right? Exactly. Lazy afternoons spent relaxing on the deck, sipping a cool, refreshing summer cocktail. But it might be time to kick your vodka and soda or can of hard seltzer to the curb for summer 2022. A new TikTok video shared by @catherineirvin showcases what she's expecting to be "the drink of summer," and we're already hooked.
The video is picking up steam with nearly 800,000 views and 102,000 likes, and it's easy to see why. The drink is so simple, yet so genius, and you'll totally want to grab all the ingredients and make it right away.
Cucumbers. Agave. Jalapeno. Mint. Tequila. Um, yes, please! Sign us up! We aren't the only ones eager to try this recipe. @Whatever joked, "Well, I said I wanted to start drinking green juice." HA! This is a great way to start. Another fan of the video, @Kelli Cornelius Rose isn't waiting for summer to make it, saying, "Trying this with mescaline for Friday happy hour, thanks!" And another TikTok user, @Jaclyn Nagel offered a great trick: "Pro tip: don’t blend the mint, it’ll make it bitter! Just muddle it in the shaker and strain it at the end :)"
Oh, and for those of you who prefer frozen drinks, the video creator was kind enough to share a frozen version of the summer cocktail. You're welcome.
