‘Smiling Cucumber’

Today is the 1st July and it marks the beginning of Dry July for many people around the world.

To kick start, I have created a very delicious and refreshing sip that won’t make you miss alcohol at all!

Recipe:

  • 5 slices of fresh ginger
  • 5 slices of fresh cucumber
  • 5 peppercorns
  • Good pinch freshly dried mint
  • 15ml lime juice
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 30ml @barkersofnz Lemon with Lime, Cucumber & Mint Cordial
  • 60ml sugar free ginger beer
  • 60ml sugar free tonic water

How To:

Muddle Cucumber and ginger in a cocktail shaker. Add the juices, mint, cordial and peppercorn. Shake vigorously until combined. Add Gingerbeer and tonic and stir until combined

Serve:

Strain into your favourite cocktail glass that has been filled with ice. Garnish with dehydrated lime, peppercorns, cucumber and fresh bay leaves

If you aren’t participating in #dryjuly try adding 30ml of vodka or gin
