In honor of this weekend's superbowl, here is a recipe for one of my favorite cocktails - one I always associate with Miami, the Mojito!

I've tried many variations, but the Cucumber Lavender Mojito is currently my fave. If you can get past the initial "perfumey" taste, this is really a refreshing drink.

Cucumber Lavender Mojito
1 1/2 oz. Rum
8 Mint Leaves and Sprig
½ Lime
2 tbs. Simple Syrup
Club Soda
½ Cucumber
dried Lavender
Lavender Flower

Muddle mint leaves and lime in a tall glass.
Cover with simple syrup and fill glass with ice.
Add rum and club soda.
Top with cucumber slices and lavender.
Stir well or shake.
Garnish with spiraled cucumber or lavender flower.
