May 2009 - Mint-Cucumber Cocktail        Back to Drink of the Month

Well, it's warming up here in Vancouver, so it is time to start thinking about summer drinks.  I just planted all my annual flowers/plants on the May long weekend, and also planted some English Mint. Today, while browsing through the Courier I found this recipe for a summer cocktail: 

2 oz Gin

4 oz tonic water

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

3 mint sprigs

2 slices cucumber

Muddle 1 slice cucumber and 2 sprigs mint in a highball glass. Fill with ice. Add gin, tonic and lime juice.  Stir and garnish with a cucumber slice.

I find tonic too sweet so I will be trying this with soda water. 

Enjoy the warm weather and a summer cocktail!
