A firm favourite for us ...and surprisingly east to make! These Cucumber & Elderflower Gimlets are a bright, refreshing gin based cocktail, perfect for late spring and early summer. Allowing the summer fruits notes in the gin to shine!
Ingredients: 60mL ImaGINation X HBWC Summer Cup Gin 30mL St. Germain elderflower liqueur 30mL lime juice 1 Barspoon Sugar One 2” piece of peeled cucumber quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into ¼” thick pieces (plus a thinly sliced cucumber round for garnish)
Directions: Add the cucumber pieces and sugar to cocktail shaker and muddle (crush the cucumber & sugar to extract more flavour) Pour in the gin, St. Germain and lime juice. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Securely fasten the lid, and shake like crazy for about 30 seconds. Strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a slice of cucumber. Enjoy!
