We all love a gin and tonic or vodka lime soda when the sun’s out, so to keep those drinks flowing, we have a cheeky twist for you and your guests to try while sipping away.
All that’s needed is a quick sugar and lemon pickle bath for your cucumber slices to rest in the fridge for a few hours, then you or your guests to can grab slices and add to your mixers for a little fresh and sweet cucumber kick.
- 1 large cucumber
- 8 tbsp lemon juice
- 4 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Using an easy peeler, peel strips (ribbons) going from top to bottom until you meet the core, and then repeat on the other side.
- Combine the ingredients together and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
- Lay out the cucumber ribbons on a flat dish or tray and pour the liquid over them. Leave for a few hours to soak and then add to your cocktails when needed!
