This drink is delicately pink and 100 percent spa day, which is exactly how I imagine the life and times of Joan Collins.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lime, sliced
  • 2 slices cucumber
  • 2 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • Soda water, to top
  • 3/4 ounce honey-hibiscus syrup*
  • Garnish: cucumber wheel

Steps

  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the lime, cucumber and mint.

  2. Add the syrup and vodka with plenty of ice, and shake until well-chilled.

  3. Strain over ice into a Collins glass and top with soda water.

  4. Garnish with a cucumber wheel.

*Honey-hibiscus syrup: Bring 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of water to simmer, stirring to incorporate. Remove from heat, add 1 hibiscus tea bag, and let cool. Remove the tea bag and store in the refrigerator for up to a month.
