Cucumber Infused Gin & Grapefruit Mimosa


Ingredients:
  • Cucumber
  • Gin
  • Ice
  • Sparkling Rose
  • Grapefruit Juice 
  • Pineapple Juice (optional)
  • Fresh mint

Method
  1. Start by stripe peeling some cucumbers.  Use a peeler to make stripes down the side and then thinly slice. 
  2. Put some ice in a shaker with cucumber slices and gin and shake it up.  If you don’t have a shaker, no worries you can skip this step.  
  3. Put a few ice cubes in a glass with a couple slices of cucumber and pour one or two shots of gin and give it a stir.
  4. Fill ⅔ of the way full with a sparkling rosé (I used Yellowglen Pink).  Top with grapefruit and pineapple juice. 
  5. Garnish with a bit of fresh mint and enjoy. 
You can switch it up and add whatever juice you like.   Sometimes if I can find oranges and grapefruit on sale I will juice some and use that.  Instead of using ice you can also use frozen berries.
