A Refreshing Summer Cocktail.
Not many things are better than a refreshing cocktail on a warm spring or summer day. This beverage is a balance of light and sweet with a hint of sour tartness. It goes down so smooth and is truly perfect for day drinking without the crash or headache!
Here’s the recipe:
There are just five easy ingredients needed for this drink: fresh lemon juice, cucumber, simple syrup, club soda and gin!
For a single drink, here are the measurements:
3 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 slices of cucumber, muddled
2 ounces gin.. sometimes I use 3 😉
2 ounces simple syrup
a splash of club soda – for a little extra flavor, sometimes I use Seagram’s ginger ale!
Simply place the two slices of cucumber in a shaker, muddle and remove the rinds. Add lemon juice, some ice and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and pour into a glass. Finish with a splash of club soda and add a few slices of lemon and/or cucumber for garnish!
