Came across this cocktail while looking for refreshing cucumber concoctions.
Sounds like I may have to whip these up this weekend.  They sound delicious!

Yield: 1 serving
3 tbsp Gin
4-6 Cucumber Slices
1/4 Lime, Sliced
4oz Tonic Water
6 Mint Leaves
1tbsp Sugar (optional)
Add mint, lime, gin sugar (if using) to 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!
Dana’s Note: For those who prefer a sweeter drink, add sugar to taste.  However, it’s also quite enjoyable without it.
Happy Sipping!
