I had a similar drink at a cool restaurant in Tucson for mothers day, but it was made with Tequila. I wanted to try it with some vodka...very refreshing!

Smooth. I made quick simple syrup as I had no superfine sugar. Easy, quick and tasty. Both of my kumquat trees are presenting right now, so I have plenty of them I just got a new mint plant so I will have that in the yard. Key lime is producing and I have a soda maker and just got the co2 filled today. Vodka and Gran Mariner on the shelf. As long as the cucumber lasts, it's made in the shade.
