Maybe with VODKA instead of GIN? The GBC (gin, basil, and cucumber): 3 cucumber slices 3 basil leaves ½ tbsp sugar (or ½ tbsp of simple syrup) 1 ounce gin lime juice (to taste) ½ cup crushed ice ½ cup tonic water
1 cups fresh cucumber juice (you will need 2 to 3 seedless cucumbers) cup freshly squeezed lime juice cup vodka cup simple syrup 1 to 2 cups cold seltzer water (lime is great!) crushed ice for serving lime and cucumber slices for garnish
Since we& in the middle of a heatwave here in LA, this drink is on the menu all weekend long. This sparkling cucumber mint gin is the ideal cocktail to sip outside during these hot summer nights as you wait for the sun to set and the sky to turn orange.
