Something about spring makes me want to shout ‘Cocktails!’

One of my very favourite tall drinks is a gin cocktail, infused with the herby delight of rosemary and smooth coolness of cucumber.  Simple to make, they are a pleasure to sip as you relax in the garden.  Or why not try your hand at making a jug full?  Then you can ‘spring’ a surprise on your friends with this delicately-flavoured glass of deliciousness.

Cucumber-Rosemary Gin and Tonic

1 cucumber
1 lime
3 sprigs rosemary
60ml gin
120ml tonic water
ice

  1. Peel one half of a cucumber, and slice a lime into eight wedges.
  2. In a tall glass, add three slices of peeled cucumber, 1 sprig rosemary, juice from a lime wedge and half of the gin.
  3. Muddle with the back of a spoon.
  4. Strain through a strainer into another tall glass.
  5. Add several cubes of ice, and three slices of unpeeled cucumber.
  6. Top with the rest of the gin and tonic, and serve garnished with rosemary sprigs.

Now get a deckchair, place it in the prettiest part of the garden, sit with your drink and watch the world go by!
