La Luna Cocktail
Hendrick's Gin

Created as a tribute to chef Rick Bayless for Chicago's "A Taste for the Arts" 30th Anniversary Gala, this refreshing cocktail combines Hendrick's gin with a mix of lime and cucumber juices and spicy jalapeño syrup.



For the cucumber juice :

  • 2 large English cucumbers

For the jalapeño syrup :

  • 8 jalapeños, cored and chopped
  • 2 cups raw sugar
  • 2 cups hot water

For the La Luna cocktail :

  • 2 parts Hendrick's gin
  • 1 part cucumber juice
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • 1 part jalapeño syrup
  • Ice
  • 2 parts soda water
  • Salted cucumber spear, for garnish


For the cucumber juice :

Pass whole, unpeeled English cucumbers through a juice extractor. Set aside.

For the jalapeño syrup :

Muddle chopped jalapeños into 2 cups of raw sugar until a thick paste has formed. Combine with 2 cups of water in a small pot over medium-low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Reduce until a cup and a half remains. (Feel free to add seeds, to taste, to adjust spiciness.) When done, remove from heat and strain off all the solids and chill.

For the La Luna cocktail :

Combine the gin, cucumber juice, lime juice, and jalapeño syrup in a tall glass. Add ice and top with soda water, stir gently to incorporate. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with salted cucumber spear.
