Cucumber Lemon Gin and Tonic

  • 2 ounces cucumber gin

Cucumber Lemon Gin and Tonic

  • To add a cucumber peel as a garish to your glass, use a vegetable peeler to peel an an additional cucumber lengthwise. Take an empty high ball glass and gently twist the slice around the inside of the glass. Because of the moisture in the cucumber it should stick to the side. Now carefully add some ice.
  • Combine the gin and lemon juice in cocktail shaker. Gently strain it into the prepareed glass.
  • Top with tonic and very gently stir to combine.

Notes

The cucumber gin will be delicious after 2 hours, but best after 24 hours.
