Cucumber Gimlet

A Refreshing Classic

Anyone who knows their Gin knows that nothing works better with Gin than Cucumber! This cocktail is refreshing and delicate and can even fool you into thinking it is healthy. Well, with a garnish of cucumber at least you can believe you are getting one of your five a day!

This recipe also features in our Top 5 Gin Cocktails feature – if you love Gin, you will love our other recommendations.

  • Cucumber
  • Fresh rosemary leaves
  • 3/4oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 simple sugar syrup
  • 2 oz Gin (Plymouth Gin is preferred for this cocktail)
  1. Mix the 2 slices of cucumber and around 10 rosemary leaves together in the cocktail shaker with the lime juice and simple sugar syrup.
  2. Add the Gin and ice and shake well to chill.
  3. Strain into a sexy cocktail glass (Martini glass works well) and top with a very thin slice of cucumber.
