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
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.
