Cucumber Rosemary Tonic Mocktail –

Cucumber Rosemary Tonic Mocktail –

This tonic cucumber cocktail is an excellent substitute for gin and tonic if you live in a dry January or if you just want to enjoy a non-alcoholic cocktail.

Cucumber and rosemary go really well together, and the flavors of both really come out when you add a sparkling tonic. This mocktail focuses on gin, not nerds.

Since cucumber, rosemary, and tonic are the focus of this mocktail, it’s important to make sure you’re using high-quality ingredients. The cucumber and rosemary should be as fresh as possible. And use high quality toner. This is going to change everything.

Cut the cucumber, either into slices because it’s super easy, or into long ribbons. I like the ribbons because they give the cucumber a larger surface area, so more flavor and aroma. This isn’t hard to do with a vegetable peeler or mandolin, if you’re lucky.

For toner, I recommend using a high-quality toner like Fever Tree or Fentiman’s. They are made with a gin and tonic in mind, so the flavors are very complimentary to the spices.

Personally, I really like the tonic with motherwort and cucumber. Try this mocktail if you can find it.

The final addition that makes this mocktail special is the peppercorn. Fresh peppercorns can give a drink a delicious taste. There may also be a slight spiciness, but it is very mild. You might not even notice the taste. But the perfume is delicious.

You can use a mixture of peppercorns (black, red, white, green), or just black peppercorns. Either way, it will bring out the flavor of the cucumber and really take this mocktail to the next level.

Add non-alcoholic gin?

If you want to try one of the many brands of non-alcoholic gin available today, the choice is yours. This mocktail is certainly not necessary, but it could be a fun addition and a chance to try these cheesy Zero Gins.

Check out this list of non-alcoholic drinks for some ideas. You can find them in your area, or you can go directly to their website to inquire about distribution or delivery.
