Ingredients
  • 2 slices peeled cucumber, plus 1 unpeeled slice for garnish
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons turbinado sugar
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces cucumber-infused gin (such as Hendrick's)
  • 3 to 4 ounces club soda
Directions

Place the peeled cucumber slices, mint, cilantro and sugar in a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add the lime juice and gin. Fill the shaker halfway with ice and shake vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes (this seems like a long time, but it's essential).

Fill a cocktail glass with fresh ice. Strain the drink into the glass, top with the club soda and garnish with a cucumber slice.
