Tiny Cocktails: Sparkling Cucumber Mint Lemonade (with Gin)

41 days, 2 hours and 15 minutes until Spring, that sounds close enough, right?According to our groundhog friend, we’ll all have an early Spring this year, and to set up the mood, a tiny cocktail is a must these days.I’m just dreaming over here of sunny days and to finally say, GUYS! Spring has sprung!, I can’t wait to see flowers everywhere in my dreamy Montreal, and indeed I can’t wait to sip some delish sparkling fresh cocktails with my girls.I confess this winter has been quite hard for me (and for most of my friends as well). So let’s get ready and enjoy this sparkling cucumber mint lemonade, with a bit of gin if you’re in the mood for a boozy treat. 
It’s so fresh and pretty, I promise you’ll have more than one.
