springtime sipper

Springtime Sipper




  • 1 1/2 ounces chopped fennel ((fill up a shot glass or bar measure))
  • 2 1/2 inch slices cucumber
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon  honey
  • 1 1/2 ounces  gin ((I like Hendrick’s or Bombay Sapphire))
  • ice
  • cucumber ribbon, lemon slice, fennel fronds for garnish


  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the fennel and cucumber very well with the lemon juice. You want to muddle until it’s as close to liquid as you can get it.
  2. Add the honey, gin and a handful of ice.
  3. Shake well for at least 30 seconds and then strain into a coupe glass or receptacle or choice.
  4. Garnish with a cucumber ribbon, lemon slice and/or fennel fronds.
