Fortuitous Trees, The Detours #2

The second Detours cocktail (see the first here), Fortuitous Trees, transforms a martini into a stiff walk in woods, mellowed by a hint of cucumber.

I think I'll add a little cucumber juice next time, though a sake might actually work too (and change the conceptual idea). An addition that rounded out the flavor and added some body could bring a lot to this cocktail.

2 oz Letherbee Gin

0.5 oz BroVo Douglas Fir liqueur

0.5 oz Dolin Dry

2 dashes orange bitters

1 dash cucumber bitters

Lemon expressed over drink.

Pairing idea #1 - deviled egg, lots of dill

Pairing idea #2 - oyster with mignonette
