Welcome Back Cocktail!

Mmmm…it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!

The Man of the House is on his way home from a business trip.  I think I’ll surprise him with this great cocktail that I found in the book “MixShakeStir”.  I made a few changes to the original recipe to suit my taste.

Welcome Back Cocktail

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

3 slices English Cucumber
1 small piece of green chile (I used a small piece of Serrano pepper, about an inch long)
1 sprig fresh cilantro
1 1/2 ounce gin (I used Hendricks)
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup (I had already prepared cucumber simple syrup on hand, so I used that)

First, fill your cocktail glass with ice.  Then muddle 2 slices of the cucumber, the cilantro sprig and the chile pepper in a cocktail shaker.  Pour the ice from the glass into the cocktail shaker, then add the gin, lime juice and simple syrup.  Shake, shake, shake! Strain and pour into the cocktail glass.  Cheers!
