Cool off with Tommy Bahama’s refreshing Cucumber Smash

Garden Party season. Those three words send a  thrill through my soul with their implication. Late afternoon barbecues and picnics that deliciously turn into evening soirees under twinkle lights and stars. Barbecue and beer are replaced with light appetizers, dessert, wine and dazzling cocktails.

Light and refreshing is on the menu this time of year, and Tommy Bahama has the recipe to please. Sit back, relax and enjoy the evening with a cool, cucumber twist on the classic cocktail.
