AT A GLANCE
This tastes best if the gin and aromatics have had plenty of time to get to know each other before serving.
|01||Decant gin into a large jug, stir in cucumber, apple, lime and mint. Add a splash of bitters, sugar syrup and lime juice to taste and chill for at least 2 hours.|
|02||To serve, pour a measure of gin mixture into tumblers half-filled with large ice cubes, top with tonic or soda (and more bitters, sugar syrup or lime juice, as required), garnish with extra mint and serve.|
Note For sugar syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to the boil, then cool completely and refrigerate for up to 1 year.
