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


  1. Wash and cut up your cucumbers. Blend them in your Magic Bullet. Pour the pulpy cucumber juice through a sieve into a pitcher.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, sugar, mint and sugar in a jar and muddle until well incorporated.
  3. Add your gin, muddled mixture, and cucumber juice all together and mix well.
  4. Pour into a chilled glass and add a sprig of mint and a slice of lemon for some aromatics.

Now sip away while watching your fave episode of Bar Rescue!
