Cucumber Rickey Gin Cocktail

I’m still editing shots from my trip to Galicia last week so here’s a cucumber rickey cocktail that I made after seeing it on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago. I was under prepared and didn’t have any crushed ice but it still tasted great. I’m a relatively new convert to gin and do find myself craving one on a warm evening nowadays. I was a little apprehensive of this gingery twist but it worked very nicely.
