New to the spring menu at Five Leaves in Brooklyn, this is one "sexy salad cocktail." Refreshing and tart with a touch of earthiness and pepper from the muddled arugula, it's one of those too-easy-to-drink-quickly drinks.

Ingredients

Directions

Muddle the cucumber and arugula in a mixing glass. Add the other ingredients and shake hard.

Double strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a few arugula leaves.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
