Mother’s Ruin cocktail

5 ingredients

In the mid-eighteenth century in the UK people frequented gin houses more often than traditional pubs. Many a young man would go straight from the factories, mines and hard labour jobs and spend all of their money there, thus bringing nothing back home to the table. For this, gin received the nickname "Mother’s Ruin" and this is what I have named the cocktail. Combines traditionally English ingredients into a semi-sweet, refreshing cocktail.


Peel the side of the cucumber and make three roughly equal strips for the garnish. Add crushed ice, chopped cucumber, Hendricks, mint, elderflower liqueur and syrup to a shaker. Shake well and pour directly into the glass. Garnish with cucumber strips and mint sprig, and serve.
