Sure, this cocktail was designed as a St. Patrick's Day drink, but it is also ideal for refreshing sipper all spring and summer long. It focuses on a combination of fruit, including fresh cucumber and lemon with pear vodka, and the herbs elderflower and mint.

You will notice the recipe giving the choice of either club soda or lemonade is given and both are great options. However, I found I liked the drink even better when made with equal parts of each.
