This drink is delicately pink and 100 percent spa day, which is exactly how I imagine the life and times of Joan Collins.
- 1/2 lime, sliced
- 2 slices cucumber
- 2 mint leaves
- 2 ounces vodka
- Soda water, to top
- 3/4 ounce honey-hibiscus syrup*

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the lime, cucumber and mint.
Add the syrup and vodka with plenty of ice, and shake until well-chilled.
Strain over ice into a Collins glass and top with soda water.
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.
