Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz Cocktail

Lately it’s been hot and sticky and gross around here, so a refreshing cocktail is definitely in order. I figured one featuring cucumber and mint pretty much fits the bill, so I present the Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz. Happy Friday, and bottoms up!

Cucumber Mint Gin Fizz

Adapted from here.

3 sprigs of mint
1 inch piece English cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
2 ounces gin
Seltzer water
1 thin wedge cucumber, for garnish

Strip leaves from two sprigs of mint and place in the bottom of a highball glass along with cucumber.

Muddle with a muddling stick or the handle of a wooden spoon. Fill glass with ice.

Pour gin over ice, top off glass with seltzer water. Stir once, and garnish with remaining mint sprig and thin cucumber wedge.
