Gnome's Water

A few weeks ago, while researching cocktails for an article I'm working on, I got to taste through Gina Chersevani's liquid creations at EatBar (I love my job...) Everything she does is inventive, cool and often unexpected, but the best libation I tasted that night, in my humble opinion, was her Gnome's Water. She combines cucumber and rose-scented Hendrick's Gin with lavender, cucumber water and fresh lime, and the resulting sipper is irresistibly refreshing. I can see myself drinking this all summer long...and it would go perfectly with oysters or clams on the half shell.

To check out Gina's masterpieces for yourself, head to EatBar in Arlington.
