SUMMER 2018 RECIPES

HENDRICK’S GIN & TONIC

Sublime simplicity itself. There’s a good reason the Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic, with its

cucumber garnish, is so loved. Poetry in a balloon-style glass.

  • 1 part (50mL) Hendrick's Gin
  • 3 parts (150mL) tonic water
  • 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber

Combine all ingredients in a glass filled with cubed ice. Lightly stir and serve.  Garnish with 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber.

 

CUCUMBER LEMONADE

You cannot control the behavior of wasps at a picnic, you can however ensure you have a summer drink as azure in flavor as the summer evening is long. Cucumber Lemonade brims with naughty thoughts for summers yet to be.

  • 2 parts (50mL) Hendrick's Gin
  • 1 part (20mL) lemon juice
  • 1 part (20mL) sugar syrup
  • 2 parts (50mL) soda water
  • 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber

Combine all ingredients in a highball filled with cubed ice. Lightly stir and serve.   Garnish with 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber & 1 slice of lemon.

 

SUPERSONIC HENDRICK’S GIN & TONIC

A refreshing twist on the classic Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic, award-winning master mixologist Rich “The Cocktail Guy” Woods invented the Supersonic to include a bracing shot of espresso, which keeps this drink on its high-flying toes.

  • 2 parts (50mL) Hendrick’s Gin
  • 1/16 parts (1 bar spoon) sugar syrup
  • 1 part (25mL) fresh espresso (left to go cold)
  • 2 parts (50mL) tonic water

Combine all ingredients in a highball filled with cubed ice. Lightly stir and serve.  Garnish with 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber.

 

SALTY DOG

The Greyhound can be easily made, even in the blasting madness of a July sun, but it lacks a certain something. That certain something is the flavorsome contrast of a salty rim, once so configured, you have the wickedly naughty Salty Dog.

  • 1 part (50mL) Hendrick's Gin
  • 2 parts (100mL) pink grapefruit
  • 1/4-part (15mL) sugar syrup
  • 1 part (50mL) soda water
  • Grapefruit wedge

Rim the glass with salt. Combine all ingredients in a highball glass filled with cubed ice. Lightly stir and serve. Garnish with a thin wedge of pink grapefruit.

 

GARIBALDI SPAGLIATO

The Garibaldi is forged from the alliance of Campari from Northern Italy with oranges from the south. Spagliato means 'mistaken' or 'wrong', and you'd be pretty spagliato to miss out on the mesmerizing citric vitality of this Italian masterpiece.

  • 1 part (25mL) Hendrick's Gin
  • 1 part (25mL) Campari
  • 2 parts (50mL) orange juice
  • Top with champagne

About Hendrick's Gin

Hendrick’s Gin is a deliciously super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement. Unlike ordinary gins, Hendrick’s Gin is distilled in Scotland, in small batches of only 500 litres at a time. Only Hendrick’s Gin is made with infusions of cucumber and rose petals, alongside a blend of 11 botanicals, producing a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma. Hendrick’s Gin is made in a combination of a Carter-Head and Bennett copper pot still, creating a divinely smooth gin with both character and balance of subtle flavours.  Represented by PMA Canada. www.pmacanada.com
