Cucumber Gin & Tonic
Back in February, we had a warm spell and I had a hankering for a gin and tonic. I had the afternoon free so I went and purchased a handle of Boodles Gin, limes and some tonic water.
I got home, grabbed my fancy cocktail glass (ahem I mean off-brand mason jar), twisted the top off the tonic water and suddenly a hurricane of sticky tonic jetted across the kitchen, covering the floor, myself and part of the walls.
I stood there in a puddle while tonic water dripped off of my elbows and considered the situation. Ultimately the best course of action seemed to be to finish making the gin and tonic and then mop the floor (It actually took two weeks and five moppings before my feet stopped sticking to the floor but that gin and tonic was worth it).
Gin and tonics are my kinds of cocktail, meaning that you don’t need three kinds of alcohol, a shaker and some fancy bitters to make it. And muddling some cucumber in the bottom of the glass? Man oh man, you are in refreshment heaven. But don’t take my word for it, next time you’re in the mood for an afternoon pick-me-up, this cocktail has got you covered.
