Smiling Cucumber

‘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!


  • 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


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
