Boozing With Willie: Gin Cucumber Southside

Gin Cucumber Southside

Like it or love it, bulking season is over and it’s time to show off that body you’ve been hiding all winter. If you haven’t been watching your carb intake, working out and all that other mumbo-jumbo you promised yourself you would do back on January 1st, don’t bother worrying now, time to have fun in the sun. However as history would have it, you’ll ignore this and still try to eat and drink right in hopes of shedding some emergency pounds. This cocktail is going to be something you can sip on and not feel like you’re setting yourself too far back as far as your diet goes.

Low in calories, refreshing and tasty. This is truly the best way to describe the Gin Cucumber Southside. In recent years, cucumber has become more and more commonly used in cocktails with good reason. They’re a great compliment to spirits containing gin or vodka as you’ll find out here. Not to mention, they’re really refreshing to the point of masking the alcohol you’re consuming. Leave your thoughts on this cocktail in the comments. If you’re really fond of this post, I’ll be sure to work on more that are similar to this. Enjoy everyone, cheers!
