Cucumber Cooler- 1 3/4 oz @HendricksGin, 3/4 oz @StGermainDrinks, 3/4 oz lime juice, cucumber, mint, soda water, up

19 Aug is currently sold out of Hendricks, prompting a trip to the local liquor store to find the lovely OLCC had dropped the price to $30 for the next couple months! Though today has brought cooler weather and gray skies to the Portland metro, yesterday was still toasty enough for a summer refresher, this one comes straight from the Curiositorium . A tasty and simple cocktail with delightful floral notes and cucumber coolness that goes down dangerously well.

1 1/2 oz. Gin (Hendricks)
3/4 oz St. Germain
3/4 oz lime juice
2 slices cucumber
2 sprigs mint
soda water

Place all liquids (except soda water) in shaker with ice with 1 slice cucumber and leaves from one small sprig of mint. Shake, double-strain into tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with other cucumber slice and mint sprig. Top with soda water (if desired)
