Quick Fix: The Cucumber Rose

The Cucumber Rose 
The Cucumber Rose
1 oz Hendrick's Gin
2 oz cucumber water
1 oz lemonade
5 drops of rose water
½ 1 lime
fill sprite

The subtle blend of rose water and cucumber in this cocktail highlights the flavors of Hendrick's Gin. Hendrick's signature method of distillation blends a juniper based distillate from a small batch pot still with a botanical infused distillate from a patented Carter-Head Still. 
This method of blending the 2 distillates rather than distilling all the ingredients together brings the cucumber and rose petal flavors to the nose without being overpowered by juniper.  Speaking of overpowering, be gentle with your rose water it can quickly ruin your drink. 

Cheers ya'll!
