For a really refreshing gin drink, look no further than this Cucumber and Cardamom gin.
This drink is best served as one part gin to two parts tonic and garnish with a fresh cucumber slice and some 'bruised' mint
Peel the cucumber to remove the green skin as this will make the gin taste bitter. Slice the cucumber in half lengthways and using a teaspoon; gently remove the seeds and slice into 2cm wide pieces
In a clean and sterilised Kilner jar, add the cucumber, crushed cardamom, gin and seal the jar.
Keep in the fridge and give a gentle shake a few times a day
After 7 days, decant the gin from the Kilner through a coffee filter and funnel into a clean bottle.
