Cool Hand Cuke

Colonie cocktail menu

Isn’t that a clever name? I wish I could say I came up with it, but I didn’t – the smarties over at Colonie in Brooklyn Heights did. This drink was summer in a glass – the bartender freshly juices a cucumber and then mixes in all the rest of the lovely ingredients, which include my favorite, St. Germain. And any summer beverage with mint in it is a win.


To complete the seasonal bliss, the food is incredible, comes in small plates (so you don’t get too full, ie uncomfortable in the heat) and then when that whole lovely experience is over, you get to wander back to the subway as the sun sets over the lovely that is Brooklyn Heights.

So, did you guess yet that #ilovesummer? Yes, I write in hashtags now.
