Method

  1. Chop each lime into 6 pieces and put in a deep, sturdy bowl or jug. Add the sugar and muddle together with a cocktail muddler, potato masher or the end of a rolling pin. Once all the juice has been released, strain the mixture into a blender, discarding the lime pieces.
  2. Halve the cucumber and peel 16 long ribbons from one half. Roughly chop the rest, add to the blender and blitz with the lime syrup until smooth.
  3. Sieve the mixture into a large, ice-filled jug and add the white rum, herbs, half the cucumber ribbons and the sparkling water. Stir gently to mix. Add the remaining cucumber ribbons to glasses to serve.

Tip: Make this 1-2 hrs ahead, leaving out the ice and sparkling water until serving.
