KEY PRO-TIP TO HAVE THE CUCUMBER INFUSION
Make this drink about 30 minutes before serving and add the cucumber. This helps the flavors to marry and the drink really take on that fresh cucumber flavor everyone loves!
PRO TIP: KEEP EVERYTHING CHILLED BEFORE
Before combining the drinks chill the ginger ale and wait to add ice until the cucumber has infused, right before serving. This will help the drink also from becoming watered down. If you can store in a fridge before serving.
