Job temporarily closed? Working from home? Quarantined? The Corona Virus is wreaking havoc on America, and more and more of us have to stay home for one reason or another. I saw an article today saying that there are lines outside of liquor stores, as opposed to grocery stores, as people are preparing for a potential shut down of something or anything. I feel that. So. Have a drink or two, because most likely you’re not driving anywhere. Just make it a healthy one, because why not. This cocktail has some vegetables as opposed to sugary juices, so I deem it healthy-er, and definitely meant to break up the monotony of scary (and sometimes contradicting) news reports….. Be safe out there!
What you’ll need:
- 2 oz Hendrick’s Gin (or quality gin of your choice)
- 1 oz cucumber juice (from a juicer)
- 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 2 sprigs rosemary
In a cocktail shaker add one sprig of rosemary and the simple syrup and muddle. Add remaining ingredients and ice. Add ice to a highball or large rocks glass, and strain the ingredients of the cocktail shaker into it. Garnish with lime, cucumber slice and/or rosemary sprig.

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!
