Gin & Sin: Hendrick’s Gin with Cucumber and Oregano

fresh dried oregano 300x240 Gin & Sin: Hendrick’s Gin with Cucumber and OreganoFrom Barbuzzo Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar 

By Matt Goldstein

If you’re a fan of the gin martini with cucumber than the Gin & Sin with Hendrick’s Gin, cucumber & oregano will be you’re new drink of choice.  Barbuzzo’s take on the Gin & Sin adds fresh oregano to the gin and cucumber with Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth.  We’re not talking about oregano out of a jar.  This fresh but dried oregano is shaken right off the stem and smashed into the cucumber.  With a dash of Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth, the Hendrick’s Gin is shaken over ice with the oregano suffused cucumber and poured in an ice filled glass with mashed pieces of cucumber.  The Barbuzzo gin and sin is exceptional, complex, delectable and refreshing.  We will most likely be ordering fresh oregano with every cucumber gin martini we drink.

    Many subspecies and strains of oregano have been developed by humans over centuries for their unique flavors or other characteristics. Tastes range from spicy or astringent to more complicated and sweet. Simple oregano sold in garden stores as Origanum vulgare may have a bland taste and larger, less dense leaves, and is not considered the best for culinary uses, with a taste less remarkable and pungent. It can pollinate other more sophisticated strains, but the offspring are rarely better in quality.*

    Oooh… Love, love LOVE Hendricks and cuke. Shepard and I went to a Hendricks tasting at the Franklin last Spring and “discovered” it. Never tried it with oregano, though, we usually muddle it with fresh mint.
