2 ounces Smooth Ambler Greenbrier Gin

3 slices of English cucumbers

½ ounces lemon juice

½ ounces simple syrup

3 drops Scrappy's celery bitters

2 heavy dashes Angostura Orange bitters

Soda water

Thinly sliced cucumbers for garnish

Lemon twist for garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients, excepting soda water and garnishes, in ice-filled shaker. (No need to muddle the cucumbers. The ice will take care of that.)
