Drinks on Me

I know I’m not in a cocktail rut. I just had a very good day at Bev&Mo. I did see these two drinks and I felt compelled to post them. So just in case you are:

Cucumber-Rosemary Gin and Tonic

1 cucumber
1 lime
3 sprigs rosemary
2 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
4 oz. tonic water (preferably Q or Fever-Tree)
ice

Peel one half of a cucumber, and slice a lime into eight wedges. In a highball glass, add three slices of peeled cucumber, 1 sprig rosemary, juice from a lime wedge and 1 ounce gin. Muddle with the back of a spoon.

Strain through a mesh strainer into a second highball glass. Add several cubes of ice, and three slices of unpeeled cucumber. Top with remaining gin and tonic, and serve garnished with rosemary sprigs. VIA

Boulevardier

1 1/2 ounce rye (or bourbon)
3/4 ounce Campari
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
lemon zest for garnish

Combine liquid ingredients in an ice-filled mixing glass and stir until cold. Strain into a cocktail glass. Squeeze your lemon zest over the surface of the drink, run it along the rim, and drop it into the glass. VIA
