Marshmallow pops that are bright and whimsical are a delicious way to add some pop to your spring event. Shown here, the mallow pops from Treat House are decorated with green and white nonpareils with a green mallow center. Just in time for the green grass to spring forward.
A minty green drink that packs a tangy tart punch is sure to put a little spring in your step.
- For the Cucumber Vinegar:
- 1/2 cup sliced cucumber (peel on)
- 1 cup unseasoned rice wine vinegar
- For Each Drink:
- 2 shiso leaves, plus 1 extra for garnish
- 8 mint leaves
- 1/4 ounce simple syrup (see note above)
- 3 ounces fresh Granny Smith apple juice (see note above)
- 1 ounce Cucumber Vinegar
- 1/4 ounce fresh juice from 1 lime
For the Cucumber Vinegar: In a small bowl, combine cucumbers and rice wine vinegar. Let stand 5 minutes, then strain. Reserve Cucumber Vinegar for cocktails, and serve cucumber slices as a snack, if desired.
For Each Drink: Add shiso, mint, and simple syrup to a highball glass. Muddle, pressing gently, until mint fragrance is noticeable; do not tear or mash the leaves. Add apple juice, cucumber vinegar, and lime juice and fill glass with ice. Stir until well chilled, about 10 seconds. Garnish with shiso leaf and serve immediately.
