52. Cucumber Elderflower Gimlet & Dill

Eat & Drink with Ali Hassan & Marco Timpano

Comedians Ali Hassan & Marco Timpano, discuss, lament & come to terms with Food & Drink. They bring over a quarter century of restaurant experience to the podcast table.


Cucumber Elderflower Gimlet

A Gimlet is a beautiful thing, it's a cocktail typically made of 2 parts gin and 1 part lime juice. A 1928 description of the drink was: gin, and a spot of lime. The glorious thing about the gimlet is it was made to be modified or amplified if you will, and here is a great example.

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 ½ ounces of Gin, sub in Vodka if you don't have or like Gin.
  • 1 ounce St. Germain liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • A 2 inch piece of peeled cucumber, quarter lengthwise then slice those quarters into ¼″ thick pieces.
  • If you want to add some "bellezza" to your coupe or martini glass a thinly sliced cucumber round for garnish is not a bad idea.


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and cucumber pieces.
  2. Add Gin, St. Germain and lime juice.
  3. Shake your Shaker until it feels a bit frosty on the outside, you will bruise the shit out of your cucumber and that is what we want here.
  4. Strain the cocktail into your vessel, and the if you wish garnish with a slice of cucumber.
  5. Enjoy it like you've been married to the love of your life for 10 years like I have!


OH we sing thy praises. Over beans, over potatoes, over beets, over tomatoes, in your tzatziki, on a filet of oily fish, stuff inside a whole fish, as a garnish, as a primary flavour....IT'S ALL GOOD!


  • 2 cups of french green beans, steamed and still crisp
  • 1/2 cup of sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large bulb of garlic, mashed
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of loosely packed dill, chopped
  • Coarse salt, to taste

Mix all these ingredients together in a bowl, let sit for a half hour and serve as a terrific accompaniment to brunch or dinner.

So don't Dilly Dally...and don't fear the amount of dill in a BUNCH - take it as a challenge and get it in ya! Also...the health benefits are NUMEROUS!
