Refresh Your Taste Buds with This Cucumber Collins

Print Recipe

A Tom Collins is a well known (and well loved) drink mixed with lemon juice and gin that refreshes your taste buds with every sip. This holiday season, we created a fun spin called a Cucumber Collins.

This version is still refreshing in every way, with an added splash of grapefruit juice and some cucumber for freshness you can't beat. The garnish on this is easy (and beautiful) - strip off some cucumber ribbons with the peeler you've got in your kitchen! Impressive looking and tastes great? Check and check!
