I could say now that due to the corona pandemic, I’m forced to stay at home and drink on my sofa… but let’s be real, I’d get creative why I can’t come out in normal days too.
So time to relax, put up your legs and enjoy a nice Cucumber Mint Gimlet. Social distancing is kinda great.
- Fresh limes
- Sugar syrup
Wash or peel a cucumber and cut 6 cm of it into small pieces.
Put the cucumber and some mint into a shaker and muddle.
Add 1 part sugar syrup, 2 parts lime juice and 4 parts gin into the shaker.
For my cocktail glasses, that would be 1,5cl syrup, 3cl lime juice and 6cl gin.
Shale with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with mint or a cucumber slice. You can also combine them into a little floaty.
