    To get some more intense cucumber flavor, make simple syrup with some of the cucumber...it lasts for a while in the refrigerator and rounds out the taste of the drink. Add plenty of cucumber slices! My favorite summer cocktail, no doubt. Limeaid is good, too.

    I've never been a gin fan but...this drink is PERFECTION!

    We added 6 leaves of freshly-picked mint per glass to ours. It adds to the experience considerably!

    Cootie: How do you make the simple syrup with the cucumber? I'll like to try some of that.

    I'm not much of a gin fan, so this sounds right up my alley. How exactly do you make it?

    I just used 2 shots of gin, lemonade, about 8 slices of cucumber and 4-6 leaves of mint per 8 oz glass. I'm not sure if it makes a difference or not but we used New Amsterdam Gin which is pretty smooth. I'm generally a vodka gal but this drink is absolutely delicious!
