TASTE.38 | CUCUMBER ROSEMARY GIN & TONIC

Refreshingly, pretty cocktails have been on my mind lately so when I cam across this lovely recipe by The Kitchn, I had to share it with you all.  Rosemary and cucumber remind me of spa infused water, but when you add a little gin and tonic tto the mix you end up having something really special to serve to your summer guests. Enjoy!
