A Great Cocktail for Spring/Summer

There's a recipe in the April Bon Appetit for a cocktail called a Gordon's Cup. I made up a batch of these this weekend; they are delicious and are perfect for a spring/summer drink. Here's the recipe:

Gordon’s Cup - From Comme Ca in Los Angeles

2/3 of 1 small lime, cut into 6 wedges
2 ½-inch-thick rounds peeled cucumber
¼ cup gin
1.5 tablespoons Simple Syrup
1 cup cracked ice
Pinch of sea salt

Place lime and cucumber into cocktail shaker; mash with muddler or wooden spoon until lime is juiced and cucumber is pulpy. Add gin and Simple Syrup, then ice. Cover; shake vigorously 3 times. Pour contents of shaker into rocks glass. Sprinkle with salt (optional).
