Cucumber Yum Yum

Another drink by Hardeep Rehal. This cocktail earned him the Danish Championship in cocktail making in 2009. The original version uses raspberries.

 

Whats in it?

4 cl good gin

2 cl aquavit (i.e. http://www.aalborgakvavit.dk/sortiment/aalborg-export-akvavit.aspx)

2 cl fresh lime

3 cl Acacia Honey

4 slices of fresh cucumber

2-4 strawberries or raspberries

 

Then what?

– Throw the cucumber and berries in the shaker and mash them with a muddler

– Ad gin, aquavit, lime and honey

– Fill up with ice and shake – Put some effort into this to release the flavors especially from the cucumber

– Use a strainer to get rid of cucumber and strawberry pieces

 

Enjoy
