Cucumber Gin Fizz

The following recipe and photography was provided by recipe developer and food photographer, Ashley Durand of Plate & Pen.

I love eating local produce, so I figure, why not drink it too? No, I’m not talking about a green juice, I’m talking about a summer cocktail that’s swimming with fresh cucumber flavor. It may sound strange at first, but don’t knock it ’till you sip it!

Cucumber Gin Fizz

Featuring muddled cucumber and mint served with lemon sparkling water, lime juice and gin, this spin in the classic gin fizz can only be described as crisp and refreshing!
