Delicious, thanks. I love the st germain/falernum combo in the ninth ward, so this was a must try. I used Hendrick's and velvet falernum. 5/5

Posted as a guess at the recipe. I transferred authorship to the creator for him to update with the authentic recipe. Originally posted as 2 oz gin, 1/2 each St Germain and Velvet Falernum, 3/4 lime juice, 3 sli cucumber, 2 spg dill, splash tonic.
