This Daiquiri-like cocktail by The Savoy's Tom Walker is as cool and crisp as a dip in a mountain stream.  Don't be scared of the absinthe - it makes the drink.  By Alice Lascelles in The Sunday Times Magazine.

Glass: Coupe spritzed with Absinthe.  Garnish: Cucumber

Crush the cucumber and mint in the bottom of the shaker with the rum, lime and sugar syrup.  Shake hard with ice and double-strain into a coupe spritzed with absinthe.  Top with a splash of soda.  Garnish and serve.

60ml Barcardi Superior Rum

30ml Lime juice

15ml sugar syrup

8 mint leaves

3 cucumber wedges

chilled soda water

4 spritzes of absinthe for glass
