It’s past lunchtime, it’s Friday, the sun’s out. I think it’s time for a G&T with my new cucumber and lemon mint gin…
-Shred cucumbers (I use a peeler) and pick herbs, place in bottle with a squeeze of lemon juice. Fill bottle with gin (use a basic but good gin, the expensive ones are already infused with lots of flavours)
-Place in a cool place so that the cucumbers don’t perish too quickly and strain out the solids after about 2-3 days. Any longer than this and the cucumbers will start to go off and make the gin taste grassy.
