CUCUMBER COCKTAIL PREPARATION

First we will fill the shaker with ice and remove with the help of the teaspoon. Then remove the excess water.

Secondly, we will serve the gin from above to oxygenate the mixture.

Thirdly, we cut two thin slices of cucumber and pour them into the glass, letting them rest for a few seconds for the ice to ab
sorb the cucumber aroma. Then, with the help of a slide-like spoon, we let the tonic slowly slip into the cup. In this way we prevent the bubble from breaking and keep the carbonic at its point.

Finally, we let it rest for about a minute so that the ingredients start to fuse properly and… to enjoy! You already have a special gin and tonic with cucumber, modern and elegant.
