- For the gin
- ½ Grower’s Selection Cucumber, washed and cut into ribbons with a veg peeler
- 4 sprigs mint, washed
- 500ml Asda London Dry Gin
- To serve
- Cucumber ribbons (cut as before)
- 1L soda water
- ½ lime, thinly sliced
- Mint sprigs
Put the cucumber and mint in a sterilised bottle or jar. Add the gin and shake for 1 min. Make sure the cucumber and mint are completely covered, adding an extra splash of gin if needed.
Keep in the fridge for 1 week to allow the flavours to infuse. Strain, discarding the cucumber and mint, then keep the gin chilled in the fridge until you want to serve it, for up to 1 month.
To serve, curl a freshly cut cucumber ribbon around the inside of a tall glass. Add ice and 25ml of the gin, top up with soda water and decorate with a lime slice, fresh mint sprig and 2 paper straws.
