There is something about the understated flavor of cucumber that's instantly calming. It has just enough oomph to awaken your senses. That cool, refreshing flavor pairs incredibly well with lime which brightens it up a just a bit.

Add gin to the mix, especially one like Hendrick's (which is on the floral, vegetal side), along with a splash of bubbly seltzer water and you're one step closer to complete bliss. By balancing soothing, cool flavors with just enough bright notes this drink is the perfect reward after a long, hot day.
