Ingredients:

For juniper syrup:
1⁄4 cup dried juniper berries
3⁄4 cup water
1⁄2 cup sugar

To make the drink:
3 slices peeled cucumber
1 slice lime
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
2-3 tablespoons juniper syrup
Ice cubes
Tonic water

Directions:

To make the juniper syrup, smash juniper berries using a mortar and pestle (or place them in a plastic bag and crush them with the bottom of a heavy saucepan). Place berries, water and sugar in a small saucepan over high heat and boil, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Using a coffee filter, strain liquid into a glass container and discard berries. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the drink, place cucumber in an on-the-rocks glass and smash slightly using the back of a spoon. Add lime slice, lime juice, juniper syrup and ice. Top off with tonic water and stir.
