  • 8013bff4ec4f7c2b0c3cc607d6b41100This is a great recipe from Atkins for an evening, low-carb beverage. This recipe may be made nonalcoholic by replacing the gin with 1 additional ounce of club soda.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1/2 Cup skinned, seeded and chopped cucumber
    • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 2 Tablespoons fresh or frozen blueberries
    • 5 1/2 Teaspoons granular sugar substitute (Truvia)
    • 1 Teaspoon fresh rosemary
    • 4 ice cubes
    • 1 Ounce gin
    • 3 Ounces club soda or selzer

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Peel, remove seeds and coarsely chop the cucumber.  Measure out 1/2 cup and place into a blender.
    2. Add the lemon juice, blueberries and granular sugar substitute (if using sucralose use 4 tsp and add 2g NC to the total).  Blend on high until throughly blended.
    3. Add the rosemary and pulse 1-2 times just to chop up the rosemary to release it’s flavor.  Strain with a fine mesh strainer and press on the pulp to release all the liquid into a glass.  Discard the pulp.
    4. Add ice to the glass then the gin and club soda.  Stir to combine.
