I certainly didn’t invent this, but what I did do is refine it with “slapped” mint and a cucumber round and Rhum Agricole (or white Rum).
2 shots of Hendricks Gin
1 shot Rhum Agricole or white Rum
1 European (seedless) cucumber peeled and sliced into chunks (plus a few rounds)
4 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice
Agave Syrup or Sugar Cane Syrup to taste- it’s a sweet tart kind of drink
Fresh mint/well washed
In a cocktail shaker muddle fresh lime juice with cucumber chunks and Agave Syrup until you have a nice pulp
Add Hendricks Gin and Rhum Agricole
test for sweet/tartness adjust with Agave or Cane Syrup
Shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty
Strain into a Martini style glass and garnish with a piece of “slapped” mint and a cucumber round.
you slap mint by putting it in your hand and slapping your palm against it.
Drop mint into top of drink add a splash of club soda and get busy.
be careful.. this drink doesn’t taste like alcohol.
