This one recently won third place in GQ's 20 best cocktails:
Juliet & Romeo
* 2 oz Beefeater
* .75 oz Fresh Lime Juice
* .75 oz Simple Syrup
* 3 drops Rose Water
* 3 drops Angostura
* 3 slices Cucumber
* 3 sprigs Mint
* Tiny pinch of salt
Garnish: Mint leaf and 1 drop rose water/3 drops of Angostura Bitters.
Muddle cucumber, mint and pinch of salt. Add rest of ingredients. Let sit for 30 seconds (time allowing). Shake. Strain. Garnish with 1 floating mint leaf and 1 drop rose water on top of leaf, and 3 more drops of angostura on the surface of the drink.
You can buy rose water at Sultans Market on North Ave. I would get an eye dropper at the container store as well as a couple of extra drops will make this drink way to much like the jewerly box of a very old southern belle.
The pinch of salt is really, really small. It should be muddled with the cuke to bring out it's freshness.
