  • A bit too lime dominant for me, a fat pour on the st germain improves it. Maybe reduce gin a touch next time. — ☆☆☆
  • Made with cucumber-infused Greenall's gin. Accessible and tasty. Using a more "ginny" gin might help differentiate this from, say, a daiquiri. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Gin- sweet, refreshing

Next time, I'll use only one cucumber slice.

I thought this was really

I thought this was really refreshing. I'm not a huge gin fan, but this was extremely well balanced. I even used Tanquerey opposed to a couple of our less Juniper-heavy gins we tend to favor. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I intend to have this gin cocktail again this summer.
