Cucumber Collins

  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, from about 1 lemon
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 ounces gin
  • 5 slices of cucumber
  • club soda, to top off
  • mint, to garnish

In the bottom of a glass, muddle the cucumber, lemon juice, and simple syrup. I don’t know why I don’t own a muddler, but the handle of a wooden spoon worked just wonderfully!

Muddle away until the cucumbers are a bit crushed and the juices have released.

Add gin into the glass along with several ice cubes and shake, shake,

Pour back into glass with fresh ice cubes and top with club soda.
