There’s a reason why cucumber is used on the eyes to aid the skin and to help relaxation – it comprises mainly water, which makes it so darn refreshing.

Cucumber has always been a natural garnish to gin – not too overpowering, perfectly complementing the botanicals present in gin. So it was only a matter of time before someone made into a flavour of gin itself.

And now the The English Drinks Company have gone one step further and created a recipe for a classy Cucumber Gin Martini.

So if you want to feel refreshed and relaxed this Cucumber Gin Martini recipe will show you how.
