Recipe Book: Cucumber Ginger Fizz
With Spring poking through the still wintery clouds, we’ve found a fresh, yummy cocktail to toast the weekend with. Cucumber and lime is an amazing combination and perfect for those sunny days.
1 oz. fresh cucumber juice
1 oz. gin
1 oz. ginger simple syrup
1 oz. fresh lime juice
You can either juice about two inches of a cucumber or muddle and strain pieces of fresh cucumber to obtain 1 oz. of juice. Mix juices, syrup and gin in shaker with ice. Shake for 20 seconds. Top off with club soda and serve in an old fashion glass with a cucumber slice and ice ball!
Pour Me Ginger Simple Syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
4 oz. ginger, peeled and chopped
Add sugar and water to pot and bring to boil. Once sugar is incorporated, take off heat. Add ginger to mixture and let seep for 2 hours. Strain mixture through fine strainer and refrigerate remaining syrup. Lasts up to one month in fridge.
