This fresh, minty cocktail is the perfect compliment for a spa treatment, even if the spa is in your own home. Square One Organic Vodka, maraschino liqueur and Spa Nectar (made of cucumber, agave nectar and ginger) all combine into a refreshingly complex Square One Sensation. Mid-summer is the perfect time to create this cocktail, using fresh ingredients straight from the garden.
