Okay, you might disagree with me here but it's my heartfelt opinion that nothing – nothing – tops off a drink like a cucumber. 

Whether it's a simple slice inside a G&T, or a more fundamental ingredient in something altogether more intricate, it provides a cool edge that you just can't get from anything else.

Unconvinced? Well try these, then come back to me...

1. Sparkling cucumber mint gin

A twist – if you'll pardon the pun – on an old favourite. Cucumber and mint are well acquainted bedfellows, as you'll quickly come to learn, and this drink proves exactly why.

2. Crucomber

All the way from Nantucket, where a well known bar called CRU boasts this as a signature dish. And the good news? You don't have to a) travel across the Atlantic, or b) be a master mixologist to taste it for yourself.

3. Cucumber mojito

How could you say no?

5. Cucumber jalapeno martini

Oh now we're getting adventurous. The cucumber takes a supporting role here to the intense, flavour-packed jalapenos and the natural bitterness of this old fave – but the combination is absolutely divine.

6. Mango mule mocktail

Don't feel like drinking? No problem – our versatile green pal is every bit as comfortable in an alcohol-free drink as in all the others, and it pairs beautifully with the sweet mango in this concoction.
