I just made this for the first time in many months, and it really is good- the cucumber and St. Germain make for such a refreshing way to drink tequila (which I admittedly don't tend to gravitate towards, but tonight was Rick Bayless night....)

Made with creme de violette instead of rose water since I had it on hand. Lovely and tasty. (4 stars)
