A bit of a departure for me to include a cocktail recipe. Not a departure for drinking it, rather writing down the recipe!
Which gin? A nice quality one if you can, like Bombay Saffire or Hendrick’s. I’ve not tried it, but I have heard Tanqueray No. Ten is really citrus-y so might go well. Ultimately though, any gin will do – even a supermarket own brand as you’re adding extra botanical flavours here.
2 parts gin
1 part limoncello
Lemon verbena sprig (If you don’t have this, a strip of lemon peel can substitute)
Scrunch the lemon verbena and put this and the cucumber slice in a substantial glass
Add the gin and limoncello and top up genourously with the tonic
