1 1⁄2 oz Gin, Hendrick's
1⁄2 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Blanc
1⁄4 oz Simple syrup
3 sli Cucumber
Instructions

Vigorously shake all the ingredients with ice (the ice and shaking will muddle the cucumbers for you). Double strain into a tall glass, fill with crushed ice, top with soda water and stir gently. Garnish with a cucumber slice, lime wedge or both.

  • 2 oz gin, 3/4 oz lime, Cocchi Americano in place of Lillet, subbed Falernum for simple, added 1/4 oz Chartreuse (was good without, but wanted to amp it up). 3 oz Topo Chico to make it more of a tall/long drink/sipper. — ★★★★
  • Very nice. Subbed Kirkland for Hendrix. Nice summer cocktail. Could try with a little smoked salt. — ★★★★
  • Changed the lime ratio to 3/4 ounce very tasty! — ★★★★★
  • Sounds yummy! Need to try
  • You have to be careful with the lime on this. I just tried it a 2nd time, and it was too much like a glorified gin and tonic. Maybe back it off to about 2/3 or 3/4 oz. — ★★★★★
  • Good, refreshing. Used mead instead of killer and no St Germains (extra mead) — ★★★★
