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
- 1–2 basil leaves, 0ptional
- 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.
- 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!
