From other users
  • Not bad, but the cucumber, rose and mint conflict each other. Any one of them could be dropped. — ☆☆☆
  • an Eastside Cocktail + salt, rose water, bitters — ☆☆☆
  • Delicious! Even when you realize halfway through making the drink that you're out of rosewater (seriously, how do you go through a whole bottle of rosewater?) and you have to use orange flower water instead. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Very nice. One person I served this too thought it was too salty. Smaller pinch? — ☆☆☆☆
  • Best cucumber martini ever. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Very balanced. Gave more drops of ango on top, nice visual as it hits the drink. Delicious! — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Insanely refreshing, floral, and TASTY — ☆☆☆☆☆

Thanks for the citation.

Thanks for the citation. Updated source per zombijosue. Added brand of gin and corrected the amount of mint from 6 to 3 springs to conform to cited recipe.

I don’t know if this should

I don’t know if this should be a curation request (too many years spent lurking without making an account). But per Toby Maloney the pinch of salt should more specifically be 15-20 grains of kosher salt. This can also be made with Hendricks but at 2.5 oz.
