This week I’m on a cucumber kick, so I’ll keep that going with the next drink in our “24 Drinks” series—The Golden Cup. It’s fresh (thanks to the apple, cucumber, and mint), light (thanks to the soda), and delicious (duh!). And frankly, it’s gorgeous.

Bruise apple and cucumber. Add ice and other ingredients. Stir and decant into a wine or Collins glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
