Mothers Ruin cocktail

Glass type

Whisky glass
Whisky glass

5 ingredients

In mid eighteenth century times in the U.K. people frequented gin houses more often than a traditional pub. Many a young man would go straight from the factories, mines and hard labour jobs and spend all of their money thus bringing nothing back home to the table. For this Gin received the nickname Mothers Ruin and this is what I have named the cocktail. Using traditionally English ingredients to combine into a semi sweet, refreshing cocktail.


Peel the side of the cucumber you are going to use into 3 roughly equal strips.
Add crushed ice, chopped cucumber, Hendricks, Mint, elderflower liqueur and syrup to shaker. Shake well and pour directly into the glass.
Garnish with cucumber strips and mint sprig.
