Cucumber cooler cocktail
A light, refreshing cocktail with fresh lime and mint and a surprisingly pleasant crunch from cucumber slices.
- 1.5 oz gin (or 3 tbsp)
- 4-6 cucumber slices
- 1/4 lime, sliced
- 4 oz tonic water
- 6 mint leaves
- 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
- Add mint, lime, gin, sugar (if using) to shaker and muddle.
- Add cucumber slices to shaker and shake vigorously.
- Pour mixture over glass filled with ice and top with tonic water.
- Stir, let set for a few minutes for the flavors to enhance, and enjoy.
For those who prefer a sweeter drink, add sugar to taste. However, it’s also quite enjoyable without.
