Cucumber Mint Gimlet1
I was recently at a wedding where a friend, who is a Bar Rescue enthusiast, showed off his bartending skills and made me some great gin gimlets. I thought I would try my hand at a version of it with this Cucumber Mint Gimlet recipe since I usually have all of these ingredients in rotation in my kitchen.
Quick and easy to make on a weekend afternoon or even after work. Or both.
Cucumber Mint Gimlet
- 6 English cucumbers
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 8 sprigs of mint
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 2 cups of gin
- Wash and cut up your cucumbers. Blend them in your Magic Bullet. Pour the pulpy cucumber juice through a sieve into a pitcher.
- Combine the lemon juice, sugar, mint and sugar in a jar and muddle until well incorporated.
- Add your gin, muddled mixture, and cucumber juice all together and mix well.
- Pour into a chilled glass and add a sprig of mint and a slice of lemon for some aromatics.
