This is an elegant little drink, beautifully refreshing, and so easy it barely even needs explaining.
- Take a glass. Put some ice cubes in it.
- Pour in a measure of gin, two if it's been a hard day or you fancy feeling like a fifties housewife.
- Add a measure of cucumber mint syrup from the aforementioned candied cucumber recipe.
- Top up with soda water.
- Sip in the sun/shade/rain/whatever weather you happen to have and relax
(For added floral flair, splash in some rose water to give an extra sweetness and perfume)
