Taste of Windstar: Cucumber Press

June signifies the arrival of summer – the beginnings of outdoor cook-outs, long lazy afternoons, fragrant garden parties and early evening cocktails. Straight off our sailing yachts’ cocktail menus, this versatile beverage is as refreshing as you’d expect. Exhilarating as a day on the high seas, this bubbly mix of cucumber and soda will cool down even the hottest days. Add your choice of vodka or gin to the below recipe to satisfy any guest at any time of day!
