About this Cocktail

Discovered this at my fav local spot in downtown St. Petersburg, FL called Cask & Ale. These were so good on a hot summer day we kept going back for more. My mom claims it "the best drink she's ever had". While I am a Bourbon guy, this gin based cocktail is always a treat. So I gathered the recipe from the bar tenders and this is what I have perfected at my home bar.

Ingredients:
  • Approx 1/3 of a Lemon squeezed
  • 4 slices of Cucumber
  • 4 sprigs of fresh Basil
  • 1.5oz Solerno
  • 1.5-2oz Hendricks Gin
Preparation:

Muddle cucumbers, basil, and lemon juice.
Add solerno and Gin to shaker.
Fill with ice.
Shake for 10-15 seconds.
Strain over ice.
Garnish with Basil
Enjoy!
