I love using really seasonally ingredients in my recipes and that includes cocktails. The combination of mint, cucumber and lime make this a super refreshing drink and perfect for a warm day.
- 12 mint leaves
- 6 cucumber slices
- 1/2 lime quartered
- 2 oz elderflower liquor
- 2 oz gin
- 6 oz seltzer water
- violets, cucumber slices for garnish
Add mint, cucumber and lime quarters to a cocktail shaker and muddle with a muddler or the back of a spoon.
Add elderflower liquor, gin and ice and shake until cold, about 30 seconds.
Strain into two cocktail glasses with fresh ice and top each with bubbly water. Garnish each with a cucumber slice and a violet.
