A Mojito for Gin Drinkers.

I saw this cocktail recipe for “That Cucumber Drink” on Imbibe Magazine’s site recently. Happening to love cocktails with cucumber, I had to try it. My husband and I made them this past weekend. They were deliciously refreshing. They tasted to us like a gin based version of a mojito.

Recipe: Cucumber Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 8 Cucumber Slices
  • 6 Mint Sprigs
  • 3 oz. Gin
  • 1 oz. Simple Syrup

Instructions

  1. Muddle the cucumber and mint in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. If you don’t have a muddler, a wooden spoon also works.
  2. Add gin, simple syrup, and lime juice.
  3. Add ice and shake.
  4. Strain and pour into a wine glass and garnish with a cucumber slice.

Quick Notes

We used Beefeater Gin but I imagine it would be even better with Tanqueray Rangpur Gin.

Number of servings (yield): 2

Meal type: cocktail
