The Pocket Cocktail

In this series, we pair one of our one-of-a-kind print pocket squares with a delicious cocktail. One starts a conversation, the other keeps it going. Today’s edition is an elegant summer cocktail, and was crafted by Lucy of Supergolden Bakes.


The English Garden

[inspired by our Parterre pocket square]

Cool off with a simple, refreshing cucumber based cocktail.

  • 1/4 cucumber, cubed
  • 1/4 cup gin
  • 1/8 cup simple syrup
  • 1/8 cup pasteurized egg white
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1-2 tablespoons elderflower cordial
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 6 strips of cucumber to decorate

Put the cucumber, lemon juice, thyme, and cordial in your shaker, and muddle with a muddler. Try to get the juice out of the cucumber. Add the gin, simple syrup, and egg white, and half fill the shaker with fresh ice. Shake vigorously until a frost forms on the shaker then strain into two chilled martini glasses (or use small elegant flutes). Decorate with strips of cucumber and a sprig of thyme.


Who might you enjoy this cocktail with?
