Cucumber Gin is an aromatic premium gin from The English Drinks Company. The contemporary twist of cucumber, combined with a delicate juniper base make for a light subtle sweetness.

It’s this delicate balance that makes it perfect for a Smoked Salmon with Cucumber Gin Granita, a light and refreshing snack with a cucumber kick.

Ingredients:

  • 100ml of The English Drinks Company Cucumber Gin
  • 1 cucumber peeled and de seeded
  • 400g of good quality smoked salmon

  • 150ml of sour cream
  • 1 tbsp of capers
  • 2 tbsp of fennel tops

Method:

  1. Place the diced cucumber in to the freezer for 2 hours to freeze, then place the frozen cucumber and Cucumber gin into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Scoop the mixture out and into a container before retiring to the freezer for 2 more hours.
  3. When the cucumber granita is frozen solid its ready to serve so it’s a good idea to make this well in advance.
  4. Simple slice you’re smoked salmon and place on some rye bread with a little sour cream, capers and herbs.
  5. Using a fork scratch the granita to create a snow type texture and sprinkle over the smoked salmon.
