With the mercury hitting record temperatures this summer and promises of sunshine to continue, the 31DOVER team have created a selection of refreshing summer punches for you to try at home and enjoy. Each cocktail utilises quintessentially British ingredients to celebrate the Britishness of 31DOVER and our gloriously temperamental weather.
Home-made lemonade is arguably one of the most satisfying thirst quenchers for a hot day. This recipe utilises cooling cucumber juice, fragrant rosemary and Vodka for a grown up twist on a childhood classic.
How to serve it
- Cut 12 thin slices of cucumber for garnish.
- Peel and chop the rest of the cucumber; transfer to a food processor, add rosemary and purée.
- Fine strain the purée over a punch bowl/pitcher filled with ice. Press on the solids to extract all the juice.
- Add Vodka, water, lemon juice and sugar syrup to the cucumber juice.
