You’ve got dessert and my favourite drink combined into one recipe- dare I say, I’m in love!
With weather in the high 20s the ice cubes in my G&T have been melting faster than I could get through a drink. The solution: (It’s not drink faster!) Pour this sorbet recipe into ice cubes so that way when they melt it only doubles the strength of your drink rather than weakening it. GENIUS!
As much as you can handle- Gin ( I love Monkey 47- it has a spice to it)
1/2 large cucumber shredded in a food processor
600 ml bottle of tonic water
1/2 lime juice
200 ml water
120 grams caster sugar
To make the syrup, heat the water with the sugar over a medium heat
Remove the syrup from the heat and let it cool
Combine the tonic water, gin, lime juice, cucumber and cooled syrup together
Sieve the mixture to ensure the larger chunks of cucumber are removed before pouring it into ice cube trays
Freeze, serve or eat on it’s own
