Alcohol + Cucumber = ??
Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Since my boss will never take the time to blog about this, I'm going to borrow his story and share it with you all. One afternoon we all ditched work early and went to a local restaurant/bar for some drinks. Someone ordered a Hendrick's Martini, which nobody else had heard of.

Basically it's an unusual Scottish gin with botanicals you'd expect to find in gin (i.e. juniper), but also has infusions of rose and cucumber added during distillation. When the martini was ordered, my coworker specifically asked for slices of cucumber to go with the drink as a garnish or whatever. I tasted it and surprisingly, it wasn't that bad. I'm sure if I were more tolerant and appreciative of a fine alcoholic drink I would even say it tasted fabulous.

Apparently my boss, "Bitter Bro" thought it tasted good because the next time he went to the grocery store, he went hunting for a bottle of Hendricks. Aside from his usual purchases of Monster energy drinks in a 24-pack, and cases of beer, he grabbed a bottle of Hendricks. Ah but wait, you can't forget the cucumber for the enhanced taste and garnish! So he grabbed a cucumber and proceeded to check out. You know how men are, if they're by themselves at a grocery store, they are likely to have only a few items with them. In and out, that's their motto with shopping of any kind. I think BB finally realized at the checkout that his purchases might've looked strange to the dude standing behind him. Tons of alcohol... and one giant long cucumber. Hmm. I don't care where you're from, that's funny.
