The Phil Collins Recipe

Part cucumber, part lime, and a bit of Yellow Chartruse, this Tom Collins variant created by Scott Marshall for The Hawthorne in Boston goes down easy. He uses Square 1 Cucumber vodka, but you can muddle your own fresh cucumber if you prefer.

Note: If you can't get cucumber vodka, you can muddle a small piece of cucumber in the bottom of the shaker and use regular vodka. Strain through a tea strainer to remove particles.
