friday at five :: cucumber cocktail

This refreshing cocktail is a delicious riff on a Cucumber Collins, which is served tall with soda water.


  • 4 cucumber slices
  • 3 mint sprigs
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime or lemon juice
  • Ice cubes

Tools: shaker, muddler, strainer
Glass: wine
Garnish: cucumber slice and mint sprig


Muddle cucumber and mint in the bottom of a shaker. Add gin, syrup and lime juice. Shake with ice, strain into chilled wine glass and garnish.
