It’s hard not to get swept up in the creative cocktail wave washing over the city. One of our favorites, the Green Day Martini at Table 31, recently came off the menu. Our source tells us it will be back on in a couple of weeks, but why wait? We’ve got the recipe for this refreshing cucumber-infused gin martini.
3 slices cucumber
1 tsp. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
2 oz. Hendrick’s gin
1 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix (available at your area Wine & Spirits Shoppe)
In a cocktail shaker, muddle cucumber with simple syrup. Add gin and sour mix. Fill with ice, shake and strain into martini glass. Serves 1.
