A cucumber mint gimlet is a refreshing cocktail, perfect to sip on during upcoming warm weather. While any good-quality gin can be used, Hendrick’s pairs especially well in this drink since it is flavored with cucumber, along with the standard juniper infusion.

1 1/2 ounces gin

10 mint leaves

1 two-inch cucumber slice, peeled

2 teaspoons simple syrup

1 lime, juiced

Muddle cucumber, mint and syrup in cocktail shaker. Add ice, gin and lime juice. Shake and strain into a small glass.
