Cool Summer Gin

 This is a classic cool summer drink that refreshes and enhances your mood at the same time!  Perfect for a hot summer day!

  • 1 ½ ounces fruity prosecco (I like Riondo, good and cheap!)
  • juice of a half a lime
  • 1 tablespoon cucumbers, peeled and diced
  • 1 ½ ounces gin
  • Orange bitters (I prefer Fee Brothers)

 In a cocktail shaker, muddle cucumbers with prosecco, lime juice and bitters.  Add gin (I like Hendricks gin in this drink) and ice.  Shake until your hand hurts, strain into a highball glass filled with ice.  Top with a dash more Prosecco, garnish with a cucumber slice and chill (you, not the drink!).
