  1. Step 1

    Combine the sugar and ¼ cup (60ml) water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until the sugar dissolves. Cook, without stirring, for a further 2 mins or until syrup thickens slightly. Set aside to cool.
  2. Step 2

    Place the sugar syrup, cucumber and lime juice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Discard solids. Add gin to the jug and stir to combine.
  3. Step 3

    Use a vegetable peeler to slice 1 extra cucumber into thin ribbons. Thread cucumber ribbons onto 6 skewers. Slice remaining extra cucumber crossways and place around the side of each serving glass. Pour gin mixture evenly among glasses. Top with ice and tonic water or soda water. Top with cucumber skewers, lime wedges and mint.
