Sexy Toy and Tonic
Difficulty: Not Hard
Prep Time: 20 minutes
3 large cucumbers
12 oz. Schweppes tonic
Cut a large chilled cucumber in half, crosswise. Then hollow out the cucumber halves of the seeds and pulp (a potato peeler & pairing knife works well). Do not dig too close to the bottom of cucumber: Stop 1” from base. Then make a level cut at the outside base of cucumber, creating a flat surface so the cucumber can stand upright like a glass (careful not to cut into the cucumber pulp area at this end; this will cause it to leak) Slice the second cucumber lengthwise. Remove the pulp. Slice into stir-stick size lengths. Mix your gin and tonic in a small pitcher with ice. Potency of cocktail is your call (want to loosen her up?) Strain cocktail into standing cucumber
and garnish with cucumber stir stick. CHEERS! Of course, the chalice is edible.
He Said: Hendrick’s Gin is always garnished with cucumber, not a lime, which makes
this unique cocktail a wonderful presentation.
She Said: Plus, a cucumber has a multitude of uses… if you know what I mean.
