Cucumber Grapefruit Fizz

1 part fresh-squeezed pink or red grapefruit juice

1 part quality gin or vodka (or more to taste)

2 parts lemon-lime soda

5-6 unpeeled cucumber slices*

1-2 grapefruit thin wedges

Combine grapefruit juice, gin or vodka, cucumber slices and grapefruit wedges in a tall glass and stir well. Fill glass with ice (most of mine melted before I could take this photo) and top with lemon-lime soda. Stir once more then serve.

*If you take a liking to this or plan on serving guests, THE BEST way to make these is to combine your gin or vodka with several sliced cucumbers in a decanter and keep it in the fridge. The alcohol will really take on that cucumber taste and add a whole new level of flavor to your cocktail. Still add the fresh slices to your cocktail.  Also, pickling or English cucumbers are WAY more flavorful than those big gunga waxy things they sell on the cheap.
