2 oz Mint Simple Syrup
1/2 English Cucumber, plus 2 paper-thin slices for garnish
3 oz gin (Hendrick’s)
2 oz lime juice
Cut the English Cucumber into large chunks and throw it through a juicer. If you do not have a juicer, you can puree the cucumber in a blender or food processor, then push the pulp through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour in the cucumber juice, gin, lime juice and Minty Simple Syrup. Shake vigorously and pour over ice with a cucumber round float. Serves 2.
