Cucumber Thyme Fizz

Cucumber Thyme Fizz

Cucumber juice has just started being on my radar. Not only is it refreshing, but it's bright in flavors when you add some lime juice in; the cucumber flavors really come through! This is a perfect drink for summer, or fall, in fact, any season!! Have some fun with it and use vodka or gin. Enjoy!
