Gin & Cuke Cooler

Gin & Cuke CoolerSummertime cocktails!

This Gin & Cuke Cooler takes the traditional Gin & Tonic to a new dimension. The simple addition of cucumbers shifts the flavor in a great direction, and fresh lime makes it more summery. The best thing might be that the cucumbers pickle slightly after sitting in your glass, and are a delicious treat when the drink is finished.

We love using St. George Spirits Botanivoir Gin, as it adds a layer of herbal flavor, and Fever Tree Tonic Water is a favorite mixer.
