Put a little something extra in your lemonade with this Cucumber Gin Lemonade recipe – an extra refreshing way to cool down on a hot day.
With summer fast approaching, I have been thinking about what I want to plant in my garden. I love cucumbers, but I always plant too many! Our family simply can’t seem to eat them fast enough. Armed with this recipe I might be able to finish off all the cucumbers this year!
If you like cucumber water, this is a a fun way to kick it up a notch and turn it into a refreshing adult beverage.
It has the earthy fresh cucumbers, sour lemon and sweet honey to create a beautifully balanced cocktail. Served over ice, this makes a very refreshing summer cocktail.
For a little kick try adding some jalapeno slices to your glass. Or make it extra refreshing with a sprig of fresh mint.
Since everyone in the family is going to want to drink this straight out of the pitcher, we recommend making the cucumber lemonade for everyone, and just adding a splash of gin to the adult’s glasses.
