Easy On The Eye

1 oz Gin, Hendrick's
1 oz Ginger liqueur, Domaine de Canton
34 oz Lemon juice
2 sli Cucumber
Instructions
Muddle the cucumber, add all ingredients, shake with ice and double strain into a coupe. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
Notes
There needs to be enough cucumber to get juice out of muddling it. Might want to add a touch of 2:1 simple syrup to give it body.
History
Pretty straight forward recipe, first made in Racket, Auckland, NZ. Contained a few more ingredients that proved to be un-necessary. First made by Apoena Saporetti.
