Gin Spiked Cucumber Lemonade
This cool and refreshing cocktail recipe takes just three simple ingredients to make!
I have found that the Simply Lemonade, Simply Limeade, Simply Peach, etc line of drinks make great mixers. I used the Simply Lemonade light for this recipe. However, you can use another store-bought or homemade lemonade. As well, you can use freshly squeezed lemon juice and simple syrup. (You’ll a total of 2 ounces so use as much or little of the simple syrup to make it as sweet as you want.)
Furthermore, this drink doesn’t have cucumber in the recipe itself. Rather, a thin slice of cucumber is floated on top. When you sip it, you get that nice olfactory stimulation. It does, actually, add a nice element therefore, I don’t recommend leaving it off.
I rimmed the glass with sugar for an added touch.
Finally, I like a good gin like Hendricks, but use whatever kind you like best.
How to rim a glass
- Start with a shallow plate or bowl of water, lime juice or lemon juice. Dip the rim of your glass into the liquid. Alternatively, you could cut a lime or lemon wedge and moisten the rim with it.
- Step two, you want to evenly dip the rim into the sugar, salt, or whatever you’re riming the glass with. I have used non-pareils, and chocolate. You may want to use coconut or sprinkles, dependingly on what you’re serving. Get creative.
- Carefully craft your cocktail and pour into your glass.
