During the summertime I tend to gravitate toward lighter cocktails with fresh ingredients. This cocktail is simple, refreshing, and can be easily customized with your favorite fruits and herbs.
Today I chose cucumber, mint, and blueberries. On other days I’ve also tried strawberries, blackberries, cilantro, rosemary, and grapefruit (not all at the same time, of course!). Feel free to customize this recipe with your favorite flavor combinations.

Blueberry Cucumber Sparkler, serves one.
In a tall glass combine 1 1/2 ounces gin, 3/4 ounce simple syrup (you can always add more, but this is a good starting point), ice, and club soda. Squeeze the juice of half a lime. Mix with a long spoon or straw. Taste test and add more lime juice or sweetener if you like.
Garnish by filling the glass with fresh cucumber slices, mint leaves, and blueberries. Enjoy!

This looks so good, its just coming out of winter and I have found myself craving non-alcoholic versions (although alcoholic works too!) of drinks like this. Thank you for this recipe! I tried this and subbed the gin for lemonade and used raspberries, mint and clementine slices, it was so good!
