a cocktail with essence of cucumber (+gin)

As promised, a recipe for one of the (many) cocktails we thoroughly enjoyed at SAVEUR‘s event at the Bellagio honoring this year’s best food blog winners and finalists. Master Mixologist at Sensi, Ricardo Murcia, was kind enough to send us the how-to for this wonderfully vegetal mixed drink, likely after noticing that we were all too busy happily sampling and snapping pics to write anything down properly!
