Cucumber and Elderflower Gin Cocktail
Well the day has arrived. Today I head back to Uni. Wow. I’m nervous, but also really excited. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a couple of years, and when I found out months ago that I could do a graphic course part-time (it’s surprisingly difficult to do graphic design part-time in Perth at a respected institute, it’s all full-time courses and my mortgage ain’t gonna pay itself so I need to keep working) I got up the courage to ask my boss if I could do it. He said yep, and here I am.
I’ve got my notepads ready, all the design programs at home now, internet (yeah haven’t had that at home yet, long story), external hard-drives, new desk chair, new dairy. I’m really excited, did I mention that?
I really want to put up some photos from my holiday but I haven’t had a chance go through them yet. For now though, I leave you with the drink I consumed every evening as the sun went down – cucumber, elderflower syrup and gin. I first tried this combination at Bivouac in Perth, and although they wouldn’t tell me there was elderflower syrup in there, I got my sneak on and eventually found it. They make it quite different to this, I guess my version is the lazy version. The elderflower syrup is just awesome – so summery.
CUCUMBER AND ELDERFLOWER GIN COCKTAIL
In a short glass, add a two strips of cucumber using a potato peeler. Add a few cubes of ice. Add 30ml gin (one shot) and a dash of elderflower syrup (to taste). Top up with tonic water. Enjoy!
