Combine sugar, lemon juice and gin in a jug and stir until sugar is dissolved. Purée or juice ¾ of the cucumber and strain into gin mixture. (This base can be prepared in advance and chilled until ready to serve.) Thinly slice remaining cucumber and set aside.
To serve, place a handful of ice in highball glasses, top with most of the cucumber and lemon slices then more ice to ¾ fill glasses. Top with the rest of the cucumber and lemon slices. Add a tray of ice to the gin mixture, stir, then strain into prepared glasses. Top with soda and mint leaves.
