The official cocktail of spring. Gin, elderflower liqueur, fresh lemon juice and fresh muddled cucumbers. A super refreshing and aromatic cucumber martini.


  • 3 ounces gin (try Hendrick’s)
  • 3/4 ounce elderflower liqueur
  • 4 fresh cucumber slices, muddled
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 12 basil leaves, 0ptional


  1. Muddle the cucumber in a cocktail shaker until completely pulverized. Add the remaining ingredients along with plenty of ice and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  2. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a cucumber slice and enjoy.


Sometimes for a different spin on this, I will also muddle in fresh basil for an earthy twist. If you like basil, I highly recommend it as the flavor is fresh and phenomenal. It will also turn the cocktail green!
