  1. Add the grated cucumber and salt to a sieve over a cup or bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Once the cucumbers have started to release their juices, muddle or squeeze the cucumber shreds to extract any remaining juice and set aside.

  4. Add all of the cucumber juice and stir to combine. Finally, strain into two cocktail glasses over ice and garnish to your liking.
