Make It: The East Side Cocktail
2 Ounces of Gin
1 Ounce of Lime Juice
3/4 Ounce of Simple Syrup
3 Slices of Cucumber
Small Handful of Mint
Add all of the ingredients to your shaker, leaving one sprig of mint and cucumber aside. Muddle well. Add ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a glass with regular ice. Press the remaining sprig of mint through the center of the cucumber. Garnish and serve with a smile.
It’s a match made in heaven -- cucumber and mint. Add lime to that and you’ve got something even more special. If you love that mix, you’ve got to take a ride to the east side with this delectable creation.
Big ups to Weather Up Austin for their help with this!
