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

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the lime, cucumber and mint.
Add the syrup and vodka with plenty of ice, and shake until chilled.
Strain over ice into a Collins glass, and top with soda water. Serve with a cucumber wheel for garnish.
*Honey-hibiscus syrup: Bring 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of water to simmer, stirring to incorporate.
