The best gin & tonic for cooling off on a hot summer day, in our opinion, is this refreshing Hendrick’s cucumber gin & tonic. There’s something about the botanicals in Hendrick’s gin, which include rose petals and cucumber, that is just perfect for summer.
Last week we had another unusually warm summer day in San Francisco, so we headed out to our usual spot on the patio to work. We had an English cucumber on hand and a fresh bottle of Hendrick’s gin, so we mixed up these to bring out and sip in the sun. We served them in these gorgeous glasses from William Yeoward and used our favorite tonic water, which you can order here. It makes a huge difference!
