Hip Hop Happy Hour: Mint to Be

This week’s Hip Hop Thursday has TWO season finales WE’ve all been waiting for! On Growing Up Hip Hop, Angela and the #GUHH crew have to deal with a tragedy they never saw coming. On Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, the couples will make a final decision about the future of their relationships. After learning of Jessica’s deception during Lie Detector Day, will Shawne ever set a wedding date? Will Soulja Boy propose to Nia? Has Lil’ Mo had enough of Karl’s lies? Find out if these couples are meant to be while enjoying a “Mint to Be,” a refreshing and sweet cocktail with a mix of mint, cucumber, and gin!

Recipe: Mint to Be

1 Serving


  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice
  • ¾ oz. simple syrup
  • 3 cucumber wheels (cut 1/4-inch thick), plus more for garnish
  • 6-7 mint leaves


Combine all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Slightly muddle the cucumber and mint (avoid bruising the mint). Add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with cucumber wheel.
