How to make it

  1. Place a martini glass in the freezer to chill.Wash the dill very well under cold, running water. Firmly rub it from stem to flower while washing to remove any loose buds.
  2. Add gin, vermouth, lemon juice, and several cubes of ice to a cocktail shaker, and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds. (Don't talk to me about bruising gin. Just shake it!)Arrange cucumber slices and dill in the chilled martini glass, and strain gin mixture over the vegetation. It's OK if the dill is not completely covered. Enjoy!
