Teri's Gordon Cup Cocktail

Print Friendly and PDF
This is a very refreshing cocktail with a muddled cucumber and lime flavoring. This recipe comes from Teri Tuuri of Castro Valley, California, pictured here with her hubby, Rick, at the famous TFE Convention in San Francisco.

2/3 of one small lime, cut into 6ths
2, 1-2” thick peeled cucumber rounds
¼ cup gin
1-1/2 T simple syrup
1 cup cracked ice
Pinch of sea salt

Place lime and cucumber in cocktail shaker; mash with wooden spoon until lime is juiced and cucumber is pulpy. Add gin and simple syrup, then ice. Cover. Shake vigorously 3 times. Pour contents of shaker into glass. Sprinkle with sea salt. To make simple syrup stir 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Boil one minute. Cool, then chill up to one month.
