Cucumber & Thyme Sour

Cucumber & Thyme Sour


We love this cocktail, a true meeting of land and sea. Cucumber meets wild coastal gin botanicals and ends in a refreshing twist on a gin sour recipe. This drink was created by Jonny the general manager at Prawn on the Lawn Padstow and came about after a collaborative morning spent with owners Rick and Katie.

  • 50ml Cornish Coastal Gin
  • 25ml blitzed cucumber, skin on

  • 25ml lime juice

Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and give them a dry shake (shaking without ice), then add ice to the shaker and shake again, hard, for around 10 seconds.

Strain into your chosen ice filled glass and garnish with a cucamelon and sprinkling of thyme leaves.
