That Cucumber Cocktail

That Cucumber Cocktail, a gin drink

When we first came across this recipe from Alex Bookless in Imbibe magazine, we were amused by what we thought was a “lazy” name.

But then we made it, and learned just how fitting the name is – That Cucumber Cocktail is exactly what it is, a perfect suspension of cucumber flavor in a classic cocktail proportion. The simple syrup and lime (or lemon, if you prefer) perfectly elevate the cucumber notes, and the mint brings in a garden-fresh herbacious scent. It’s utterly delightful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Place the cucumber slices and mint leaves in your shaker, and muddle forcefully enough to flatten the cucumber slices. Add in the remaining ingredients and some ice, and shake.

Double-strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe glass, and garnish with a fresh slice of cucumber and/or a bouquet of mint.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
