Cucumber and Vodka with Melon Liqueur (Sammy Paradise)

"To help ease the strain COVID-19 has had on the industry while bars are closed, @18point8 Vodka and I have teamed up to hire 5 bartenders to whip up 5 Kitchen-Friendly and Low-ABV cocktails. On top of that, during the crisis, 18.8 Vodka is also donating 100% of its profits to the @bartendersbenevolentfund. Patio season is heating up and drinks such as this sweet, savoury and refreshing little number created by @chrisisprettygood will go perfectly in hand!! The Melon liquor and cucumber really bring home that drinks-in-the-sun nostalgia and the Himalayan sea salt & black pepper infused olive oil give it that amazing savoury touch! You can catch Chris at @deathandtaxesto and @belfastlovepub - who have their patios open, by the way!!"
