This refreshing drink is similar to a Mojito, except that it is made with Gin. I made a larger batch in a pitcher instead of individually, topping each drink with tonic water at the end.
- 6 mint leaves
- 1/4 lime sliced
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 cucumber slices
- 4 ounces tonic water
- Add mint, lime, gin and sugar to a shaker and muddle. Add cucumber slices to shaker and shake vigorously.
- Pour mixture over glass filled with ice and top with tonic water. Stir, let set for a few minutes for the flavors to enhance and enjoy.
