That Cucumber Cocktail

This refreshing cocktail is a delicious riff on a Cucumber Collins, which is served tall with soda water.

 

4 cucumber slices
3 mint sprigs
1 1/2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1/2 oz. fresh lime or lemon juice
Ice cubes
Tools: shaker, muddler, strainer
Glass: wine
Garnish: cucumber slice and mint sprig

Muddle cucumber and mint in the bottom of a shaker. Add gin, syrup and lime juice. Shake with ice, strain into chilled wine glass and garnish.
