Drink Recipe: “The Cutecumber”

Crunchy, green and juicy. The cucumber. Famous for their role in salads, but now starring in a feature film with gin! Mix fresh cucumber and lime with a little gin, and you're in business. The Cutecumber is a simple cocktail that will impress and refresh.

Not a drinker? No problem! Leave out the gin, and swap it for extra soda water. The drink is still just as refreshing, and kids will probably get a kick out of the bright green color.

If you don't like gin, feel free to swap for vodka. There won't be a huge difference in taste; I've done it before. I just use gin because the herbaceous qualities of the gin pairs harmoniously with the cukes. Either way, cheers!
