Cucumber Cooler Cocktail With Gin

A Cucumber Cooler Cocktail with Gin is a wonderfully refreshing cocktail, perfect for warm days or as a relaxing drink after a long day. Here's a delightful recipe for this crisp and cooling summer cocktail:

Cucumber Cooler Cocktail Ingredients

2 oz (60 ml) gin

1/2 lime, juiced

4-5 cucumber slices

4-6 fresh mint leaves

1 teaspoon simple syrup (adjust to taste)

Club soda or tonic water

Ice cubes


Muddle Cucumbers & Mint: In a cocktail shaker or mixing glass, add the cucumber slices and fresh mint leaves. Using a muddler or the back of a spoon, gently muddle the cucumbers and mint to release their flavors without pulverizing them too much.

Add Gin & Lime Juice: Pour the gin and freshly squeezed lime juice into the shaker or mixing glass over the muddled cucumber and mint.

Sweeten with Simple Syrup: Add the simple syrup to the mix. Start with a teaspoon and adjust the sweetness to your preference. Stir or shake the ingredients to combine.

Strain & Serve: Fill a highball glass or a Collins glass with ice cubes. Strain the cucumber, gin, and mint mixture from the shaker over the ice.

Top with Soda: Top off the drink with club soda or tonic water, whichever you prefer, to your desired level. This will give your cocktail a refreshing effervescence.

Garnish & Enjoy: Give the drink a gentle stir to combine all the flavors. Garnish with a cucumber slice, a sprig of fresh mint, or even a lime wedge for a decorative touch.

Optional Variation: For an extra burst of cucumber flavor, consider using a cucumber-infused gin or adding a couple of extra cucumber slices to the mix.

This Cucumber Cooler Cocktail With Gin is a cooling and revitalizing beverage, perfect for those moments when you need a refreshing sip. It pairs perfectly with a light summer salad and cleanses your palate when eating richer BBQ flavors. Enjoy its crispness and the delightful combination of cucumber, mint, and gin—ideal for unwinding and relaxing. Cheers!
