Cocktail Wednesday - Cucumber Gimlets

The next drink we had for cocktail Wednesday (October 7) was the Cucumber Gimlet, recipe from here.

  • 2 Fresh basil leaves
  • 2 slices Cucumber (.25 inches)
  • 1.5 oz Moon Mountain Vodka
  • 1 oz Lemonade
  • .25 oz Lime juice
We substituted gin for the vodka and used simple syrup and lemons instead of lemonade, but otherwise followed the recipe.

I followed the instructions: 

In a shaker, muddle the basil and cucumber.
Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice.
Shake well and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with a lime wedge or cucumber wheel. We used cucumber as the garnish.
(Doctor Who wine/gimlet glasses.)

It was refreshing and yummy.  Another success.
