Gin and Tonic with Burnt Lemon and Cucumber
(Makes 1 drink)
1 slice lemon
1 slice cucumber
1 ounce gin
3 ounces tonic water
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish (optional)
Prepare a fire for medium heat and warm the plancha. If cooking indoors, heat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Set the lemon and cucumber slices on the hot plancha or skillet for a minute or two until lightly charred but still juicy. Let cool.
Pour the gin and tonic over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with the burnt lemon and cucumber. Muddle both slightly, and serve.
