Ginfield Garden Martini

Print

“I wanted to stick with dive-bar pricing, but I wanted the drink to be feminine,” says Alison Freels, owner of the Cure Lounge on South Shelby Street. “It’s earthy and grassy, like the infield at Churchill Downs. Put your fancy hat on and drink your fancy drink.”

1 sugar cube

2 fresh watermelon chunks

4 to 8 quartered cucumber wheels

3 basil leaves

1 ounce lime juice

2 ounces Hendrick’s gin

½ ounce simple syrup

¼ ounce St. Germain

2 splashes blood orange bitters

Muddle the watermelon chunks, cucumber, and basil leaves in a pint glass. Add the lime juice, gin, simple syrup, St. Germain, and orange bitters. Give it a hard shake, then double-strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cucumber.
