Cucumber Gimlet with Hard Truth Gin

Not a fan of green beer? No worries, I have the perfect green cocktail for you to celebrate St. Patrick’s day with: a Cucumber Gimlet. This refreshing twist on a classic gin gimlet is perfect for springtime!

We actually learned how to make a gimlet at our cocktail making class that we took during our visit to the Hard Truth Hills distillery this past fall. It was such a fun class, and we have been making these at home ever since.

I made this with my favorite gin from Hard Truth Spirits, which you can find at these retailers: http://www.hardtruthdistilling.com/where-to-buy/
