A light, refreshing cocktail with fresh lime and mint and a surprisingly pleasant crunch from cucumber slices.


  • 1.5 oz gin (or 3 tbsp)
  • 4-6 cucumber slices
  • 1/4 lime, sliced
  • 4 oz tonic water
  • mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp sugar (optional)


  1. Add mint, lime, gin, sugar (if using) to shaker and muddle.
  2. Add cucumber slices to shaker and shake vigorously.
  3. Pour mixture over glass filled with ice and top with tonic water.
  4. Stir, let set for a few minutes for the flavors to enhance, and enjoy.

For those who prefer a sweeter drink, add sugar to taste. However, it’s also quite enjoyable without.
