Recipe: Sparkling Cucumber Cooler
wedges of lime
can of Dry Cucumber Soda or other cucumber soda
cucumber slices, sliced from the cucumber lengthwise and as thin as possible
- 2 to 4
fresh mint leaves
In two tall glasses filled with ice, combine the gin, cucumber soda and cucumber slices. Squeeze a wedge of lime into each glass and stir. Bruise a mint leaf or two and drop into each glass.
If you can't find cucumber soda, you can use a cucumber gin like Hendricks, club soda, and increase your cucumber peels to 3 per glass.
