#DOTW: Deep Cleanse

I don’t know about you, but I indulged like crazy this summer. Restaurant Week, ice cream, I’ve had it all. We have a little bit of time before Halloween and Thanksgiving come around, so let’s hit reset and make good choices until the fall has us gobbling up candy and turkey. This cocktail will both have you chill and have a good time, and be also pretty darn good for you!



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Hendrick’s Gin (or quality gin of your choice)
  • 2 oz Aloe Vera Juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 3 cucumber slices
  • squeeze of fresh lime juice

In a cocktail shaker muddle the cucumber and simple syrup. Add ice and all other ingredients. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with sliced cucumber.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
