Green Giant Cocktail Recipe

Green Giant Cocktail Recipe

The green gin giant cocktail is a spectacular cocktail made with ingredients that are fresh from the garden. A refreshing drink with lime, mint, basil, and cucumber in addition to Hendrick’s Gin and a little elderflower, this cocktail goes well with anything light and summery. Bringing fresh cucumber, mint, and basil to Hendrick’s Gin, the green gin giant mixes them all together for a summer cocktail that’s refreshing and full of flavor. Hendrick’s Gin is encouraged as a beverage of choice. Cucumber is the signature note of the gin, but it is also a perfect complement to herbs and is best mixed with fresh cucumber.

The best grapefruit soda to get is either Q Grapefruit from Trader Joe’s or Villa Italia from Trader Joe’s. There are certainly several options in the market, but make sure the soda is the same quality as the rest of the cocktail.
