Muddled Cucumber Gin and Tonic Cocktail Recipe
It’s no secret that Kelly and I enjoy a good old-fashioned Gin and Tonic from time to time. Here is a little seasonal additional to the classic cocktail recipe. When it comes to Gin, everybody has their own favorite. Personally, I prefer my gin to have some floral notes or a botanical flavor. Some distilleries that provide of our go-to gins are Hendricks, Prairie Organic Spirits, and a local favorite from San Francisco, Junípero. When these gins are mixed and muddled with fresh ingredients, they’re the perfect match for a summer sunset.
