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.
