Cucumber rose water gin and tonic

This cucumber rose water gin and tonic has been coined as the "gardeners gin and tonic" as it is a gorgeous refreshing highball cocktail that's crisp, slightly floral and incredibly well balanced.

This is the type of drink that really transports you to an elegant rose garden. It's the perfect accompaniment for a floral themed bridal shower. It's also refreshing like our Cucumber borage gin and tonic.

Why you should try this drink

This drink tastes just like good old fashioned G&T’s but amped up thanks to fragrant flavors plus subtle hints of sweetness coming through the syrup. It's just so good. And the best thing about gin and tonics? You can change up their taste just by picking a different gin.
