Review:

A riff on the Southside and the Gimlet using cucumber, an ingredient inspired by Hendrick's Gin having recently launched when this gin cocktail was first created.

History:

Created in 2004 by George Delgado at Libation, New York City, USA – originally as a long drink. Christy Pope took the Eastside to Milk & Honey where this now popular straight-up version was created.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.4 standard drinks
  • 17.72% alc./vol. (35.44° proof)
  • 19.9 grams of pure alcohol
