Tart & Crisp Cucumber Ginger Gin Fizz

Summer is in the air, and I must say I’m pretty obsessed with our back patio that we just recently finished (check out how we styled it here). We’ve been spending the weekends out on the deck, reading, drinking rosé and having friends over. It’s so relaxing, and I recently discovered a brand new Cucumber Ginger Gin cocktail that I’m excited to serve up at our next gathering.

I saw this recipe on Pinterest, and as a gin lover (as most Brits are) I had to try it out – plus, how gorgeous is this shade of green? It tastes just as refreshing as it looks. The cucumber makes it cool and crisp, the lime gives it a tart kick, and the ginger syrup gives it just the perfect dose of sweetness. Serve it in retro looking glasses, with a spherical ice cube for extra cool vibes. I got my ice cube mold here – so fun! See how to make this simple recipe below, and let me know what you think. Would you make it this summer?? Cheers!

Ginger Simple Syrup
Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
4 oz. ginger, peeled and chopped

Add sugar and water to pot and bring to boil. Once sugar is added, take off the heat. Add ginger and let seep for 2 hours. Strain the mixture through a strainer and refrigerate remaining syrup. (This syrup lasts up to one month in fridge, so you can have it on hand for making more cocktails!).

Ingredients:
1 oz. fresh cucumber juice
1 oz. gin
1 oz. ginger simple syrup
1 oz. fresh lime juice
club soda

I made the cucumber juice by using about 4 inches of a fresh cucumber and selecting the “whole juice” setting on my Vitamix, then I strained the mixture into a bowl. Mix juices, syrup and gin in shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Top off each glass with club soda and an ice sphere, and garnish with cucumber.
