Cucumber Lemonade Gin Punch (or the CLGP, as I like to call it) is one of my favorite summer cocktails. On a warm day out on the porch, I just can’t imagine anything better. And because the cucumber lemonade is assembled before adding the gin, the base can be served without the booze for anyone not imbibing. The cucumbers become a sort of fresh pickle in the lemonade and should be devoured, not discarded. It should go without saying that this delicious punch should be enjoyed responsibly.
