The Basil-Cucumber Gimlet is essentially our Basil Gimlet with the addition of a nice, refreshing, cooling cucumber element. This is a great summertime sipper and is perfect for a relaxing luncheon or to enjoy solo on the patio with your feet up. We start by muddling the cucumber to express the juice. (We prefer using seeded cucumbers as they have more juice to provide than their seedless cousins.) Use your favorite London Dry-style gin for a clean, crisp taste. If you enjoy this cocktail, be certain to check out our other Gimlets as well as the other cocktails in which we utilize cucumbers, such as the Cucumber Gimlet. Having a party? Make a pitch of this elixir. Check out that recipe here. Cheers!
