In the evening, Emma and I started to consume the liquor I brought back from my recent trip. I was really excited about my recent purchase, the stick blender, so after a few Gin and Tonics we moved on to blended cocktails. The most outstanding of our creations: the Sea Cucumber.
We imagine that fresh ginger would be a tasty twist on this, as would be the substitution of lime for lemon.
5 cm of cucumber
3 branches of fresh mint
2cl lemon juice
1 Tbs brown sugar (optional)
In a blender, puree cucumber, mint, lemon juice, gin and sugar (if using).
Fill a tall cocktail glass halfway with crushed ice.
Pour the green puree over the ice, and fill up with tonic.
Serve topped with a mint leaf.
