Cucumber Gin Fizz

3 cucumber slices ~1/3 inch
2 oz gin
1 oz lemon juice
.5 oz Simple syrup

Muddle cucumber in bottom of shaker, add other ingredients and ice, shake and strain over ice and top with club soda.

-Refreshing! The flavors of cucumber and gin go together so well (thanks Hendricks) this may become a go-to summer cocktail for me. I'm going to try some variations with Pimm's cup or maybe a dash of Chartreuse.

  1. Great variation of this drink! Gin Fizz is wonderful, thanks for posting.. it was a great read. My personal recipe of choice looks a little like this:

    1 PART Double cream

    1 Egg white

    1/2 PART Sugar syrup

    1/2 PART Lemon juice

    1/2 PART Lime juice

    3 DROPS Orange flower water

    (optional) 1 PART Soda water

    METHOD Shake all ingredients, except for the soda. Strain into an ice filled highball, top with soda and garnish with a lemon wheel.
