Cherry Punch Cocktail

Published on Nov 13, 2017

There is something about the sweetness of the cherries and the crispness of a cucumber that works together perfectly in this summer cocktail.  If the fresh cherries are not in season you can use the ones from the jar.  Pit fresh cherries and put them in a cocktail shaker.  Add lemon juice, slices of cucumber and mint, and muddle them together.  Add the rest of the ingredients with ice and shake for 30 seconds.  Fill two tall glasses with ice and decorate with long cucumber slices, then strain the cherry-gin mixture over the ice.  Top it off with a splash of Coke to taste.
