Sure, this cocktail was originally designed as a St. Patrick's Day drink, but it also makes an ideal and refreshing sipper all spring and summer long. It focuses on a combination of fruit, including fresh cucumber and lemon with pear vodka, and the herbs elderflower and mint.

You will notice the recipe giving the choice of either club soda or lemonade is given and both are great options, but it adds a special something to the drink when made with equal parts of each.
