  1. 1

    Wash and clean the cucumber and cut it in half crosswise. Cut 1 half lengthwise into long, wafer-thin slices with a peeler. Cut the other half into round slices with a knife. Wash the mint, shake dry and roughly pluck the leaves.

    Rinse lime and orange hot. Cut lime into slices. Use a knife to cut the orange peel very thinly into strips from the orange.

  3. 3

    Pour gin into the bowl. Add cucumber, mint, lime and orange peel and let it stand for about 5 minutes. Then remove orange peel. Fill up punch with tonic. Prepare glasses filled with crushed ice or ice cubes and serve the punch immediately. Let the evening begin!
