Learn how to make a refreshing cucumber and mint gimlet. This naturally sweetened cucumber cocktail is perfect for warm days.
Recipe adapted from my basil gimlet cocktail.
Preparation tips: If you’re going to be making a lot of these, you might want to make cucumber juice like I did in this watermelon-cucumber cocktail instead of muddling tons of cucumber.
Change it up: You can use vodka if you don’t like gin. Other ideas: substitute basil for mint, and/or add a little splash of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, and/or muddle some fresh jalapeño with the cucumber.
