Steps

  1. Cut your cucumber slices using a mandolin. For the muddling cucumbers, cut circles; for garnish, cut long slices as pictured.
  2. Lightly muddle mint leaves, cucumber slices and lime wedge in a shaker (light enough that the cucumber stays mostly in tact – you get plenty of cucumber flavor from the juice itself).
  3. Juice half of a cucumber with a juicerMuddle extra cucumber if you don’t have a juicer.
  4. Add gin, cucumber juice and sugar (if using). Shake well and pour over ice.
  5. Top with tonic water and garnish with more mint and lime if desired.
