G&T Oysters with Cucumber and Basil

Fresh oysters get a shot of G&T.

Makes: 2 dozen
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • 2 dozen freshly shucked oysters
  • 1/2 lebanese cucumber, unpeeled, cut horizontally
  • tiny basil leaves, for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon gin (Hendricks recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon tonic water (Fevertree recommended)
  • 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar

Shake all ingredients for dressing together in a jar until sugar dissolves. Use a melon baller or teaspoon to deseed the cucumber and finely dice. Just before serving, mix cucumber into dressing and spoon over oysters. Garnish with basil leaves and serve immediately.
