George’s Bar A-pear-itif Cocktail

A fantastic, refreshing cocktail combining cucumber, elderflower and pear vodka. Perfect for those upcoming spring evenings…


Serves 2


50g cucumber, chopped
50ml Grey Goose La Poire vodka
50ml Bombay Sapphire gin
50ml elderflower cordial
50ml fresh lime juice


2 long, thin strips cucumber
2 ice cubes


Muddle the cucumber with the vodka in a cocktail shaker. Alternatively, use the end of a rolling pin in a larger container to gently pound the cucumber and vodka together. Add the remaining ingredients, shake well and strain into coupette glasses. Garnish each with a cucumber-wrapped ice cube.
