"Let this frozen, “cool as a cucumber” slosh keep you as chilled out in summer’s intense heat as Cool Hand Luke stayed facing down the Captain. "
2 ounces water
9 ½ ounces Simple Syrup
4 ounces lemon juice
2 ¾ ounces lime juice
2 ¼ ounces Pimm’s Blackberry & Elderflower
12 ¼ ounces Thatcher’s Organic Cucumber Liqueur
7 ½ ounces whole milk
Glass: floral bowl
Garnish: cucumber wheel or blackberries
Combine. Place the water, simple syrup, lemon juice, lime juice, Pimm’s and cucumber liqueur in a medium-size, metal bowl and stir.
Blend. Add the milk to the bowl slowly, using an immersion blender to emulsify the mixture.
Freeze. Pour the liquid into a large freezer bag and place it in the freezer until frozen, approximately 4 hours. Alternatively, pour the liquid into an ice cream maker and proceed per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Serve. When you’re ready to drink, massage the freezer bag by hand until it’s a wet, slushy consistency. If it’s not breaking up, run the bag quickly under hot water and massage some more. Pour into the glass and garnish.
