Cucumber Gin and Cider Is the Surprise Cocktail Hit of the Summer

English Drinks Company

Cider is well known as a refreshing summer tipple and cucumbers are synonymous with summer salads but the two have never been combined successfully – until now.

The English Drinks Company have created a cocktail recipe using its Cucumber Gin that will have you very pleasantly surprised.

Cucumber Gin contrasts the sweetness of cucumber with the vibrant mix of ten botanical ingredients, resulting in a delicate and unique taste experience.

As it’s a summer cocktail we expect even more sweetness and that arrives in the form of pineapple juice and fresh strawberries.

The addition of cider just tops off the unusual mix. If you’re looking to impress that friend who’s tried everything, a Cucumber Gin and Cider cocktail is the way to do it.
