Forgive me father, I have put the cucumber on the gin.

This is not a typical post by me. This is a post dedicated to long and stressful days. If you are above 18 keep reading this post. If not, you can always skip to other recipes.

There are some days that the only thing you need is a strong cocktail and good music. My favourite drink is gin. Well, sometimes I am cheating gin with tequila, you see, I cannot resist to a margarita. But today was the day of gin.

I am not trying to promote Hendrick’s gin, but, if you like gin, Hendrick’s gin is your gin.

Hendrick’s wondrous botanical signature consists of flowers, roots, fruits, and seeds from the world over. They function to complement and set the stage for the delicious duet of infusions: rose petal and cucumber.

No other gin taste like Hendrick’s because no other gin is made like Hendrick’s. They infuse their gin with the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers.

My father is one of the finest producers too. Actually he has a small vegetable garden back in my hometown and he together with my mother every year they plant tomatoes, onions, carrots, lettuce, eggplants, zucchini, beetroot and cucumbers! Last weekend my sister came to visit me and brought me a great amount of the above. You see, I didn’t have any other option, I had to consume them before they rot. So, having in mind that cucumber is one of the main ingredients of Hendrick’s gin I add some on it, according to its original cocktail recipe, and ended up with a great cocktail. I don’t think that my father had this on his mind during packing my veggies.

Forgive me, father, for i have sinned. I am sure that you will understand.

For making the cocktail you will need:

  • 50ml Hendrick’s Gin
  • 150ml Tonic Water
  • 3 Thinly sliced rounds of cucumber
Fill a high ball glass with good cubed ice. Combine all ingredients and give a gentle stir. Garnish with 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber.
Put some great music on and enjoy! Cheers!
