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.

Prep Time: 24 hours, 3 minutes

Total Time: 24 hours, 3 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail


  • 1 1/2 ounces Square One Organic Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce Spa Nectar (recipe below)
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 4-5 fresh mint leaves, cut into strips
  • Cucumber slice or lemon twist for garnish


  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, adding a few cucumber slices from the spa nectar.
  2. Shake vigorously for 1 minute.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with a cucumber slice or lemon twist.

Spa Nectar:


  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced thinly (preferably English Cucumber)
  • 1 1/4 cup Madhava Organic Agave Nectar (may substitute simple syrup for a less sweet cocktail)
  • 1 tsp fresh, minced ginger


  1. Place the ingredients in a glass jar.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Cover and let stand overnight in refrigerator to allow flavors to marry before use.
  4. Store in refrigerator.
