Pot of Gold Cocktail Recipe

Simple, elegant, refreshing, and quite lovely, that is what you will find in this pot of gold recipe. The vodka cocktail may have just five ingredients, but these are some intense flavors and they work extremely well together.

Reading the recipe, you may think that this will be a gentle, sweet drink—that is, until you get to the ginger beer. That single ingredient kicks the flavor up to a new level, adding a snap that contrasts the refreshing flavors of cucumber, elderflower, and mint quite nicely. Overall, for a springtime drink—whether it’s St. Patrick’s Day or not—this is a gem that may soon become a new favorite.
