My friend Nancy makes the best cockatils. This being a... Summer Blush

1 1/4 oz. silver tequila

1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
2 dashes rose water
4 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
2 cucumber slices
Ice cubes

Muddle cucumber slices with rose water, Peychaud’s and lime juice. Add tequila, St. Germain and ice and shake. Double-strain into a cocktail glass, rub the remaining cuke slice around the rim and place on the rim for garnish. (Matt Seiter, Sanctuaria, St. Louis)
