Hendrick's Martini

Refreshing martini with a hint of cucumber!

[Aperitif] [Classic] [Girly] [Glamour] [Happy Hour] [Party] [Poolside] [Refreshing] [Simple] [Strong]

Ingredients [ oz | cl ][ My Bar ]
3 oz Hendricks Gin[ Add ]
12 oz Dry Vermouth[ Add ]
2 slices Cucumber[ Add ]
Method: Stir
Glass: Cocktail
Recipe:
  1. Place one large cucumber slice in the bottom of a large mixing glass and muddle.
  2. Strain cucumber juice into a chilled martini glass.
  3. In a clean glass add the Hendrick's gin and dry vermouth and stir with 4-6 ice cubes to chill.
  4. Strain mixture into martini glass.
  5. Serve with a slice of cucumber.
  6. Note: Hendrick's gin has natural cucumber notes and in my opinion is necessary for this cocktail. It costs a little more than some other standard gins, but it is well worth it - especially if you are skeptical about gin!

I like a lot of classic cocktails - this is a slight twist on the standard gin martini.
