Hendrick's Gin cucumber tonicOne of my favorite drinks is Gin and Tonic, so I decided to  share with you the new way of serving this classic with a cucumber twist. To make this drink you’ll need Hendrick’s Gin which is a brand of gin produced by William Grant & Sons in Girvan, Scotland, and launched in 1999.  The cucumber+ lemon juice combination will bring the freshness to your cocktail.

Here  is what you need:

(Serves 1)

  • Hendrick’s Gin 1 part
  • Lemon juice
  • Cucumber juice (1 cucumber+250 ml of water)
  • Tonic water  2 parts
  • Ice
  • 2 Cucumber slices
  • 2 Lemon slices
  • Maple Syrup 1 teaspoon

Tools:

  • Stirring spoon
  • Old fashioned glass

Preparation:

  • Add 1 part of Gin
  • Combine the cucumber juice+lemon juice, with the gin.
  • Add 1 big ice cube and top off with tonic water.
  • Add  a teaspoon of Maple syrup and mix.
  • Garnish with cucumber and lemon slices.

Some people say lime is better than lemon, but personnally I prefer lemon . Lime is very trendy now, but most gins have lemon peel in the mix, so why would you put lime with it?”

Cheers!!!!
