“The idea for this drink began one fine morning when I wanted something really refreshing to wake up my mind and body. Cucumber and mint is really refreshing together, but I needed something nice and sweet, so I added elderflower syrup. I added some lime juice, enough just to feel the sourness on the tip of your tongue. I added some egg white to thicken it. To combine all of these ingredients I tried lots of spirits, but only BACARDÍ superior rum did the trick, and made this drink perfect.”
