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.
