Cucumber lime cooler

Got cucumbers? I know you do. Your cucumber patch has probably gone wild, just like mine has. Cukes are pretty good for you, and darn refreshing too, so this week's Saturday Sipper is a wonderfully refreshing drink that uses up some of those surplus cucumbers.

1/2 large cucumber (or two small pickling cukes), unpeeled
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about two)
1 + 1/2 tablespoons honey 
2 ounces vodka
5 fresh mint leaves
two mint sprigs for garnishing

Makes two minty fresh cocktails!

Place all the ingredients into your blender and whirl away until smooth. Pour into two glasses and garnish with a big sprig of mint.
