The Gin Goblin has arrived! I love how this gin, green tea and cucumber cocktail turned out. It’s perfect for Halloween night, if you’re having a few friends over to pass out candy. You can make 4-6 six in a batch which is easy for entertaining. It’s extremely refreshing and even somewhat healthy! It has green tea, cucumber, mint and lemon. You can add a little kiwi as well if you want to give it an extra kick of sweetness. I enjoyed sipping a cocktail that wasn’t too sweet and that I didn’t feel guilty about drinking, especially with all of the Halloween candy I’ll be eating!

The Gin Goblin: A Green Tea and Cucumber Cocktail
5 cups brewed green tea, room temp or cold
3 cucumbers (save a few slices for garnish)
2 cups mint
1 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup honey
1 cup gin
(2 kiwis for a sweeter version)
pinch of salt

Directions
Brew the green tea or buy unsweetened green tea.
In a pitcher add the green tea, lemon juice and honey.
Toss the sliced cucumbers and mint in a blender. Pulse until chunky.
Add half of the green tea mixture to the blender and continue to blend the cucumbers and mint with the green tea until smooth.
Add the mixture you just blended  into the pitcher with the rest of the green tea and stir, until everything is combined.
Serve with giant ice cubes. Garnish with mint, cucumbers and of course a spooky skeleton!
