      Cucumber-Rosemary Gin and Tonic When it comes to gin and tonics, I love the assertive taste of Hendrick’s (and judging by our gin survey, I’m not alone). Adding a slice of cucumber is classic, but throw in a sprig of rosemary to take the gin’s herbal flavors to a whole new level. I’ll admit, I drink enough g&ts; in the summer to grow slightly bored with them. How could I take my go-to cocktail up a notch? First step, change up the tonic. Most of the sweet, standard tonics trample all over the gin’s floral flair. Subtler tonic waters, like Q or Fever-Tree, keep the quinine bite without the cloying sweetness, letting the gin shine through. Next, add some herbs. I was afraid rosemary would overpower the drink. But it’s barely there, playing off the Hendrick’s botanicals. The combo – as Hendrick's says – is not for everyone, but fans of bold gin should enjoy this twist on a summer cocktail staple.
