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


  1. Using an easy peeler, peel strips (ribbons) going from top to bottom until you meet the core, and then repeat on the other side. 
  2. Combine the ingredients together and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. 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!
