Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 3 small Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, more for garnish
  • 2 cups gin
  • 3 large ruby grapefruit, juiced
  • 1 cup sparkling water
Instructions
  1. In a pitcher or large jar, add most of the Persian cucumbers (save same for garnish) and mint. Muddle together until broken down, using a wooden spoon or cocktail muddler. Pour in the gin, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Strain out the cucumber and mint, discarding, and just reserving the infused gin.
  2. When ready to make the cocktails, fill 8 short glasses with ice. Pour 1½ ounces infused gin into each glass, add 2 ounces grapefruit juice, and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with sliced cucumber and mint leaves. Enjoy!
