Calming Cucumber Cocktail

Introduction: Calming Cucumber Cocktail

About: I'm a twentysomething baking obsessive, working as a baker and cake decorator, and gradually fattening up my housemates one recipe idea at a time.
So, this green thing is getting a bit out of hand, but I had to do something with the leftover syrup from my candied cucumber, and the Gordons Gin bottle is just the perfect colour.

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)
