Due to the botanicals used in the distilling process, cucumber is a great flavor match with gin. In fact, gins like Hendrick's are infused with cucumber, and the traditional garnish for a G&T made with this brand is fresh cucumber.

For this cocktail, I wanted to combine these flavors with lime and ginger – and the result was SO good! For the ginger element I used ginger ale, and there are many sugar free options:

  • Reed's Zero Sugar Ginger Ale – available from Netrition
  • Seagram's Diet Ginger Ale
  • Zevia Ginger Ale
  • Canada Dry Diet Ginger Ale
  • Schweppes Diet Ginger Ale
  • You could also try the Ginger-Lime flavor of Sparkling Ice!

If you prefer to use ginger beer, see my recipe for Low Carb London Mule for ideas. 

How to Make a Cucumber Gin Fizz

Make the cucumber juice by placing roughly chopped cucumber in a single-serve blender or similar. Blend until it has liquidized – you may need a splash of water to get it going.

Strain the juice and discard the pulp. It will make about a half cup of juice.

The cucumber juice can be made in advance and kept for up to a day covered in the fridge.

Add the cucumber juice to a cocktail shaker, together with some ice, gin, and fresh lime juice. The amount of gin depends on how strong you want the drink to be. I'd recommend four tablespoons for a weaker drink and six tablespoons for a stronger one.

Shake well, then strain into two glasses that have been filled half-full with fresh ice.
