I made this delicious Cucumber Cooler Cocktail a couple weeks ago at a party and it was hit! The perfect refresher on a hot summer day.
Recipe adapted from the Minimalist Baker
2 oz Gin (I always use Hendricks)
4-6 Cucumber Slices
1/4 Lime Sliced
4 oz tonic water (I used Q Tonic-found at Earthfare & Whole Foods)
6 Mint Leaves
1 Tbsp Sugar (optional)
Add Mint, Lime, Gin and Sugar to a Cocktail Shaker and Muddle
Add Cucumber Slices to Shaker and Shake Vigorously (no ice necessary)
Pour Mixture (not strained) over Glass (I used short ones) filled with Ice and top with Tonic Water
Stir, let set for a few minutes for the flavors to enhance and enjoy!
