Mr. Próspero Cucumber Martini

"Excuse me Bartender, there's a poem in my gin"

"Gin and the Bore "

“A gin is a gin is a ginswore the bore nothing odd can be.” But if that gin should win eleven botanicals inoh, then what a gin it would be. So we tricked him in bed, gave him Hendrick’s instead then fully sober, he shouted with glee “this gin is not gin like others that be yet it tastes even more
like gin to me.”

Cortesy of Hendrick's gin

4 or 5 slices of cucumber
1 1/4 oz Gin hendrick's
3/4 oz Midori melon
1/4 oz Simple syrup
Dash of fresh lime

Muddle the cucumber with the simple syrup and the fresh lime in a mixing glass then add the gin and the midori.
Shake well and double strain into a chilled martini glass.
Decorate with a slice of cucumber and a mint leave.

You can try this drink in "DiDis" Martini bar at the Dunas Douradas Beach Club, Algarve/ Portugal.
