I thought I’d choose a light, refreshing drink for this week’s cocktail (seen above, on the left). The hubs got this drink last week, atop the Prudential building in Boston, called Top of the Hub. In case you’re wondering, his sister got the Pomegranate Martini (middle) and I got the Ultimate Martini (right).
- 2 ounces gin
- 5 ounces tonic water
- 3 cucumber slices
- 1 lime wedge
- Splash of soda water
Place the cucumbers on the bottom of a highball glass. Squeeze the juice from the lime wedge into the glass.
Use a fork to lightly grind the cucumber slices.
Add a few ice cubes to the highball glass.
Pour the gin and tonic into the glass. Finish off the drink with a splash of soda water.
The Wednesday Whereabouts yesterday was Wild Dunes. We’re there now, and loving the relaxation. It’s located very close to Charleston. My family and I used to vacation there every summer, until Kiawah became our new beach choice. Congrats to all of those who guessed it correctly!
