If your Gin & Tonics, Martini’s or any gin-based cocktails could do with a bit more tang, then perhaps its time to add a refreshing shrub into the mix.

Easy to make and just as easy to drink, a Cucumber & Mint Shrub not only pairs beautifully with gin but adds character and variety and a fantastic savoury hit to your drinks.

Cucumber & Mint Shrub


1 cup (6 ounces) finely diced cucumbers

2 tablespoons honey

5 sprigs fresh mint

3/4 cup rice wine vinegar


In a small mixing bowl, muddle cucumbers, honey and mint until the honey are well blended and the herbs are bruised. Add vinegar and transfer mixture to a sterilized glass jar. Allow mixture to rest in the refrigerator for two days, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve or muslin cloth. Discard leftover cucumbers and mint. This Shrub will keep for up to one month, refrigerated.
