Like a spiked spa drink, this cocktail from bartender James Stuart is refreshing and delicate—just lightly herbal from the muddled rosemary and gin.
Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
2 thin slices cucumber
12 fresh rosemary leaves
2 ounces Plymouth gin
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup (see notes)
Garnish: very thin cucumber slice
Muddle cucumber and rosemary in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, add gin, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake well.
Double-strain into chilled cocktail glass. Float thin cucumber slice on top of drink and serve.
