Try the crisp, cool Cucumber Gimlet! This refreshing cocktail pairs the vegetable with gin or cucumber-flavored vodka.


  • 4 slices cucumber, cut 1/8″ thick, plus more for garnish
  • 2 ounces gin or cucumber vodka (homemade or purchased)
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice, plus a lime wedge for garnish
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Splash of soda water, optional


  1. Add the cucumber slices to a cocktail shaker and muddle them (gently mash) to release the juices.
  2. Add the gin or cucumber vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and shake until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into glass. If desired, add a splash of soda water. Garnish with a lime wedge or cucumber slice and serve.
