This refreshing homemade gin is perfect on a hot summer's day. Be sure to deseed the cucumber and do not exceed the twenty-four hours infusing time, or the gin will become a little watery. Feel free to play around with flavours though; herbs such as mint, thyme or tarragon pair nicely with cucumber, as does lemon peel or a couple of cardamom pods.
