Girlie Drink of the Week

30 Sep

Hopefully I won’t get derided for this one, since it has gin.

Cucumber Rosemary Gin & Tonic

  • Cucumber
  • Lime
  • Sprigs of rosemary
  • 2 oz. Gin (I like Rangpur by Tanqueray)
  • 4 oz. Tonic water

Peel one half of a cucumber, and slice a lime into eight wedges. In a highball glass, add three slices of peeled cucumber, 1 sprig rosemary, juice from a lime wedge and 1 ounce gin. Muddle with the back of a spoon.

Strain through a mesh strainer into a second highball glass. Add several cubes of ice, and three slices of unpeeled cucumber. Top with remaining gin and tonic, and serve garnished with rosemary sprigs. Om nom nom nom …. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Only kind I can drink is the Ranjpur (sp) because of the lime in it ๐Ÿ™‚

        Looks delish, but I would offer that anyone that doesn’t like the (typical) juniper taste of gin give Hendrick’s a try. Distilled using cucumbers (no juniper taste) and hands down the smoothest gin you’ll ever drink.

    That looks yummy, I like tanqueray and tonic and this sounds like a good way to dress it up

      It is very refreshing, especially because of the rosemary ๐Ÿ˜€

        Seems like an awful lot of trouble for a drink. Why not just have a glass of warm gin with a human hair in it? (Any one know the movie reference?)

          I don’t think I want to know ๐Ÿ™‚
