Cucumber is our teachers pet of Gin Garnishes followed closely by Rosemary.
Of course for some folks Cucumber and Gin is a love it or hate it debate, a little like the big Vegemite conundrum
It all of course depends on the botanicals of your chosen Gin, hence why it’s a perfect pairing with Hendricks due to its cucumber blend.
We thought we should share our favourite Cucumber Cocktails because as well as being delicious you can make them look fabulous with that versatility in shapes created with a cucumber garnish.
Let us know your favourites and which Aussie Gin you like to pair your cucumber with

This beautiful floral number embraces Elderflower and Chartreuse, tangy, slightly sweet, earthy and refreshing.
Chartreuse is a liqueur made with a variety of herbs, plants and flowers. Chartreuse has a particularly unique flavour and a stunning green hue. Chartreuse originates from a small town in France. Monks actually first created the bright green herbal infusion as early as the mid-eighteenth century. Garnish with edible flowers and cucumber slices.
