Everyone knows that dehydration is one of the biggest issues when it comes to drinking alcohol. Chugging water before you go to bed is helpful for staving off a hangover. But even better than that, is hydrating while you drink. Cucumber and coconut are as good as it gets when looking for natural hydration. Do yourself a favor tomorrow and make this cocktail tonight.
Makes Two Drinks
1 cup coconut water
1/2 large English cucumber or 2 Persian cucumbers
1 inch fresh ginger
1/2 cup loosely-packed fresh mint
2 shots white rum of choice
Add all ingredients into a blender except for the rum. Blend on high for three to five minutes. Place a paper towel (double up if they are thin) on top of the opening of a wide rimmed glass or bowl. Slowly pour the mixture over the towel making a basket. Ring the liquid into the glass and capture the particles in the towel. Add in the rum and stir. Pour into two glasses and garnish as desired.
