For the Love of Gin

It's Friday. We could all use a cocktail. 

On Wednesday night, Z and I enjoyed dinner and drinks at The Elephant Walk in Cambridge. I don’t normally order the more expensive, “fancier” drinks when I got out to dinner (I’m more of a beer or wine girl), but it had been a long week – and I wanted gin.

The Elephant Walk has a pretty diverse and innovative list of cocktails, so I went for the gin-heavy Hendrick’s Heaven ($9.25). The Hendrick's Heaven, as described by The Elephant Walk, is "the ultimate gin martini," made with juniper, coriander, cucumber, and rose petals with splash of St. Germaine Elderflower liqueur. Garnished with a cucumber and a green olive, this cocktail was smooth, exotically sweet, and perfectly strong.

What local restaurant/bar serves your favorite cocktail? 

Elephant Walk on Urbanspoon


  1. Ooh I wish I had seen that drink when I went! Sounds lovely!

    Russell House Tavern makes the best St-Germain Cocktail around!

  2. Oooo, good to know! Thanks, Megan!

  3. I don't love the Elephant Walk but this cocktail really does sound fantastic. Church by Fenway serves my most favorite cocktails. Their bar tenders are super creative, so I actually love checking out the specials menu that day. Have you been?

  4. Elina, I have not been there, but have heard many great things about the place!

  5. I adore this concoction! I'd order this drink if I ever make it to the elephant walk. (I hear great things!)
