Tastes like summer in a glass. The cucumber really brings out the flavor of the gin. I like that it’s refreshing without being overly sweet. Perfect summer evening cocktail!

Refreshing, light, and the perfect summer mixed drink.

This recipe is fresh, flavorful and will knock you on your after three of them. You will especially enjoy this if you like Hendrick's with cucumber.
