Never heard of this cocktail and i'm not a huge fan of cucumbers but I thought it would be a refreshing drink to have with the basil leaves! Ingredients - 3 cucumber slices - 3 basil leaves - ½ tbsp sugar (or ½ tbsp of simple syrup) - 1 ounce gin - lime juice (to taste) - ½ cup crushed ice - ½ cup tonic water Instructions 1) Roll two basil leaves together, slicing them into smaller pieces. 2) Add sugar (or simple syrup) to glass, along with 1 ounce of gin, stirring until dissolved. 3) Add two cucumber slices and two sliced basil leaves, muddle 5-10 times. 4) Add lime juice to taste (I used about a teaspoon). 5) Add ½ cup crushed ice and ½ cup tonic water. 6) Make a cut halfway through your last cucumber slice, placing it in the rim of the glass along with a basil leaf for garnish.
