i read a quote once from the author of this brilliant book that went something like this…

‘if you ask me whether i prefer lemon or lime in my gin and tonic, i’ll make my own gin and tonic’

truer words have never been spoken.

while i too am a lover of the classics, this refreshing twist on an old favorite has me willing to make an exception…

cucumber-rosemary g&t

1 cucumber
1 lime
3 sprigs of rosemary
2 oz. hendricks
4 oz. tonic

muddle a few slices of peeled cucumber , 1 sprig of rosemary, the juice of 1 lime wedge and 1 oz of gin. strain into your glass and add remaining gin, tonic and ice.

garnish with cucumber slices, rosemary and ice.

we’ll be toasting with these tonight. hope you have a chance to enjoy a few relaxing sips sometime this weekend! happy friday!
