Cucumber Gin Cocktail with Honey

Cucumber Gin Cocktail with Honey

A perfect summery sip, the Cucumber Gin Cocktail demands a toast! Eastern Shore Honey concocts an elegant rosemary-infused syrup to sweeten cucumbers and lemons: light yet refreshing, and much more interesting than a normal gin and tonic. Serve it on your patio as you watch the sun slowly set or by a dock overlooking gentle waves — blissful enjoyment awaits.

My husband is one of the original Hendricks Gin drinkers, and while he prefers it stirred and up, he enjoys this cocktail. Hendricks already includes a cucumber essence. Herbal cocktails have a special place at the table. They aren't too sweet or bitter; they're earthy and refreshing.
