Cucumber Gimlet Recipe:
- 1½ oz Gin
- ¾ oz Lime Cordial
- ¼ whole cucumber
Chop cucumber into a few fine slices and place into a mixing glass. Pour Gin and Lime Cordial into mixing glass. Muddle ingredients for 15 seconds, or until pulpy. Add ice and shake A LOT. Strain, maybe twice, and pour into a coupe glass. Garnish with a cucumber slice and some cucumber zest.

I'm not a big fan of vegetables in my cocktails, but cucumber can be very refreshing. However, you can put your cilantro-habañero in the compost heap as far as I'm concerned.
