Greater Boston Gala Girls


  • 4 cucumbers, preferably fresh from the farmers’ market, peeled and deseeded

  • 1 ¼ cups cucumber-infused* gin, chilled

  • Cucumber slices, for serving

Using fresh vegetables, mint, and Alex’s “moonshine” (cucumber-infused gin, but you can use vodka as well), these cocktails will be one of the most refreshing and delicious things you’ll drink all summer!


Purée cucumbers in a blender. Strain juice out through a sieve into a bowl and chill.

In a shaker, muddle lemon juice, mint, and sugar together. Pour into a pitcher. Add the gin and cucumber juice and mix well. Add in more lemon and cucumber slices. Pour into glasses and serve garnished with a sprig of mint.
