The Lady Rockwell at Bertha's( Evan Siple / Baltimore Sun / March 19, 2014 )
How to make the Lady Rockwell
2 oz. Hendrick's gin
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. cucumber simple syrup*
3 dashes orange bitters
Cucumber and lemon twist for garnish
Combine all ingredients and shake, double strain, serve up in a Martini glass.
* Cucumber simple syrup: 1:1 ratio of sugar to water; when the sugar is dissolved remove from heat. Chop up 2-3 cucumbers (depending on volume, of course, basically enough so it's just covered by syrup) , steer in syrup until cool. Strain.
