Our signature cocktail, created by Kat Dunn, became an instant house favorite the day we opened the doors in May 2012. Fresh cucumber and lemon balm give the refreshing flavor and aroma to this summertime sipper. Served up and icy cold with Zubrowska vodka, it is the ultimate answer to the question “what should I drink on vacation on Nantucket island?”
Want to enjoy one at home? Here's the recipe for this iconic CRU cocktail.
2 oz Zubrowska Bison Grass Vodka
1 oz Fresh cucumber puree
.75 oz Fresh lemon juice
.75 oz Sesame simple syrup
1 lemon balm leaf
Slap lemon balm to release essence. Add cucumber puree, lemon and sesame syrup. Add vodka and shake vigorously. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with fresh cucumber.
