The English Garden Cucumber & Gin Cocktail

For all you Gin lovers – this one’s for you! This Gin, Elderflower and Cucumber cocktail is delicious!  

So refreshing! Look at the colour!



Cucumber and Gin English Garden Cocktail 

Just like The English Garden! So we called it the Gin & Cucumber English Garden Cocktail

So I really hope,  like me,  you find this very  English and perfect for summer afternoons, so good.

Or April evenings or anytime 🙂

Lets get get making….

Cucumber in drinks 

The cucumber isn’t over powering at all and it’s like a lovely, light, garden party spritzer.

I simply love cucumber  in drinks and you get to eat it too when you’ve supped up! 

Sit back relax and think of England and enjoy The English Garden Cocktail

So easy!! 

So what gin goes with cucumber?

Hendrick’s was one of the first mainstream gins to successfully diversify garnishing from the traditional lemon or lime slice with cucumber. ​

However I’m really not sure it  matters in this recipe, so have a go. 

I’ve made it successfully with many different types of gin 


Other Gin Cocktails 

The Tarty Tom Collins 

And if you like Gin based cocktails you’ll possible like this Tarty Tom Collins!

tom collins

The Tom Collins is a Collins cocktail made from gin, lemon juice, sugar, and carbonated water.

First memorialized in writing in 1876 by Jerry Thomas, “the father of American mixology”, this “gin and sparkling lemonade” drink is typically served in a Collins glass over ice.

A “Collins mix” can be bought premixed at stores and enjoyed alone (like a soft drink) or with gin.

However why exactly would you do this when you have the lovely easy recipe 🙂
