Wonderfully refreshing homemade cucumber gin, shaken with with fresh mint and lime juice, topped up with Prosecco or Champagne. This Cucumber Mint French 75, which is also known as a Diamond Gin Fizz, is so delicious and so refreshing, it’s the perfect cocktail for summer. Serve it at a BBQ or pool party, or sip on it in the garden while enjoying those warm summer nights (tell me more, tell me more). The homemade cucumber gin is so easy to make and absolutely divine.
Summer is just around the corner, I can taste it – or that might be this Cucumber Mint French 75 cocktail! I love cocktails any time of the year, but for some reason I really associate them with summer, perhaps that’s because most cocktails lend themselves well to pool side sipping while you soak up the sun – this unique twist on the French 75 cocktail certainly does, that’s for sure. A classic French 75 cocktail is made up of gin, lime or lemon juice and simple syrup, which is then topped up with champagne or another sparkling wine, served in a sours glass. It’s also known as a Diamond Gin Fizz, because it’s very similar to your standard gin fizz but you use champers instead of soda water.
