Yep, this is how I'll be playing it out tonight. Cucumber martinis. A warm weekend evening in the city and icy Hendrick's Gin... it can't get better—in the drinks department—than this. And, it will certainly make my still-sore-throat feel better.
With its touch of rose petals and hit of cucumber, I adore Hendrick's—and the actual cucumbers are fun, also, in a garnish sort of way.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the best Hendrick's martinis ever at Baltimore's landmark restaurant, The Prime Rib. I'm trying to duplicate their recipe and their method of making the drink. I'm fairly certain the drinks will come together.
If you don't hear back from me tonight, you can assume that my martini-perfecting process was fairly painless and totally successful.
I'm not affiliated with the company. I'm simply a huge fan of their product. And, their website is all kinds of fun. Visit them.
And remember to, as Nick and Nora Charles did, sip distinctly delicious drinks—but sip responsibly. Ok, not so much... have fun with a great cocktail.
