Cocktail Mix-Off

As I previously mentioned here, Lauren, Hilliary and myself hosted a Cocktail Mix-Off revolving around the use of Mr. Q Cucumber Soda. Regardless of your alcohol, mixers or garnishes, Mr. Q had to be a present component in the cocktail.

Lauren ended up deciding to play judge so that left Hilliary and myself to defend our libation based honor. I had such a difficult time narrowing down what cocktail to submit that I ended up submitting 3! Below please find recipes for each of my 3 cocktails. They don't currently have names so feel free to make suggestions!

Visit Laurendy Home to find out who the ultimate winner of the Cocktail Mix-Off.

Cocktail #1
     (2) parts watermelon juice
     (2) parts Mr Q's Cucumber Soda
     (1) part vodka (I used Titos Handmade Vodka for this cocktail)
     Garnish with watermelon

Cocktail #2 (although more of a shot... truth be told)
      (1) part tequila (I used Hornitos Tequila for this cocktail)
      (1) part Mr. Q Cucumber Soda
      (1/2) part cucumber juice
      Squirt of lime
