In my mind Hendrick’s and cucumber belong together. I usually enjoy a Gin and Tonic with lime but if we have Hendrick’s it is a G&T with cucumber slices and no lime. However I’ve never tried one with both so we’ll give this a go! Looks great.
hendrick’s is delish! and i have to agree with phoo-d, cucumber all the way. i like mine with a dash of bitters, as well. my summer cocktail of 2009 has to be the grapefruit gimlet (also featured in bon appetit.) i sweeten mine with agave nectar instead of simple syrup. simple syrup kind of creeps me out… cheers!
Your site is absolutely magical. The photos, the info, and the ambience are just something so unusual. My only criticism is that every time I visit, I CRAVE whatever you’ve conjured up.
I just love this site-it blows me away.
This is definitely worth a try . . . at first I thought it might be the Hendricks and Honeydew (in F&W’s 2008 Cocktails) I’ve been sipping on lately – equal parts chilled gin and tonic, a few honeydew chunks muddled with thyme, and a few more honeydew balls for garnish.
We love an official summer drink….we have themed our summers overs the years around it, “Sangria & Sunshine”, “Mojitos, Motherhood, & Madness”, “Limoncello & Life (the year we went to Italy), and on….We’ll have to try it, the summer’s not over yet!! Chris Ann & Kristin
Just made one. I like it a lot but I liked it a little better when I added some tonic water. Also at PF Changs they have a similar drink with cucumbers, mint leaves mottled with Lemon grass syrup and I believe either tonic or fresca. I like your better than Changs because it is not as sweet.
So weird – just came to Lottie+Doof to post about the warm strawberry streusel cake (mmm), was looking around after and found this recipe. Was out just *last night* and had a cocktail with Hendrick’s, muddled cucumber, and sake – served straight up in a martini glass. Was sooo good and my next job after posting about the above cake (mmm) was to find a recipe for Hendrick’s and cucumber. Will try this – but also recommend substituting a splash of sake for the lime and simple syrup – it was delish.
