- 2 oz gin
- 2 oz coconut water
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
Add the blueberries, cucumbers and fresh mint in a tall glass, top with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, 1oz of simple syrup and 2oz of Gin (check out some of our favourite gins below) and muddle all ingredients.
Add the muddled ingredients to a cocktail shaker with a large block of ice and give it a good shake.
Add crushed ice, fresh cucumbers and mint to a cocktail glass of your choice, preferably one with a stem.
Strain and pour over, top off with 2oz of unsweetened coconut water.
Enjoy (somewhat) responsibly.
Why these ingredients?
When you come into plain jane SKINBAR, you are greeted with a smile, spritz of hand sanitizer and offered water. We alternate between cucumber, orange, lemon and other fruit/ingredient infusions. We wanted to emanate that in a cocktail with the blueberries, mint and cucumbers.
Gin is a light spirit, which contains the least amount of additives and can be processed by your body at a quicker rate than other alcohols, not to mention it is created through distilling Juniper Berries, which are said to improve blood circulation to the face. Blueberries are a powerful antioxidant and source of Vitamin C, cucumbers promote hydration and coconut water is nature’s Gatorade; so even if you overindulge - you’ll remain hydrated and ready for your facial the next day!
