For those growing their own mints, here's a clever and super refreshing mix of three summer thirst-quenching classics (mojito, gin and tonic, and cucumber water), into one: the Cucumber Cooler Cocktail.
- 1 1/2 oz gin (or 3 tbsp)
- 4-6 cucumber slices
- 1/4 lime, sliced
- 4 oz tonic water (or soda)
- 6 mint leaves
- optional: 1 tbsp sugar
Add mint, lime, gin, and sugar (if using) to shaker and muddle.
Add cucumber slices to shaker and shake vigorously.
Pour mixture over glass filled with ice and top with tonic water (or soda).
Stir, let set for a few minutes for the flavors to enhance and enjoy.
