  • 5 mL sugar syrup
  • A dash of soda
  • 2 thick wheels of cucumber

Glass: Collins glass

  2. Add all ingredients except for the soda.
  3. Add ice and shake until ice cold.
  4. Double strain into a collins glass.
  5. Add ice and top with soda.
  6. Garnish with a cucumber strip accordioned in a cocktail stick.
