Cucumber Gin Gimlet Recipe (Garden Cocktail)

cucumber gin gimlet With the summer heating up a number of the veggies we planted in spring are ripe for picking. With two cucumber plants fitting neatly into a Garden Grid™ square, our cucumber plants in particular have given us quite a summer harvest. To put some of those cucumbers to work we made cucumber infused gin, and now our gin is ready to enjoy.

Carrying over the theme of cucumber cocktails, we mixed up this little summer gimlet. Featuring our cucumber infused gin recipe, the simplicity of this gimlet recipe means that the great homegrown cucumber flavor really shines through.

Our cucumber gin gimlet is a short drink, so while you can sip it out of a martini glass, it also fits nicely into a shot glass. One of the best things about this recipe though is that it stills packs a lot of flavor if you prefer to put it on ice and top with seltzer.
