Muddled Cucumber Slices

Muddled 3 cucumber wheels in mixing tin. Add all ingredients. Shake briefly. Double strain into ice-filled Collins glass bottomed with club soda. Garnish with cucumber wave.

Story: A “paper tiger” is a term used to describe something that appears threatening but is actually harmless. By adding the tequila to one of our non-alcoholic cocktail recipes, this drink becomes “harder” than paper, or “concrete.”
