Garden Gimlet by Simon Hooper

Ingredients

2 oz gin (used Tanqueray TEN gin)

¼ oz Sable & Rosenfeld Tipsy Blue Cheese Olive brine

1 oz fresh lime juice

1 oz simple syrup (1:1)

2 chunks of peeled cucumber (approx. 1 inch)

2 sprigs of dill

Sable & Rosenfeld Blue Cheese Tipsy Olives

Preparation

Muddle cucumber and dill in a martini shaker. Add all other ingredients. Add ice and shake hard until well chilled. Fine strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with Sable & Rosenfeld Blue Cheese Tipsy Olives and a sprig of dill.

A note from the creator Simon Hooper, partner at Rush Lane:
The cocktail is designed to be a contrasting flavor pairing to the blue cheese stuffed olives. The salt in the olive brine alongside the fresh, clean, delicate notes of the cucumber and dill provide a fresh palate, while the citrus notes of the Tanqueray TEN gin amplifies the citrus in the gimlet.
