Defeat my Hendricks Gin Drink

I have played around with this recipe for a bit and now i am always asked to make the drink when friends come i figured i would share and see if anyone else likes this and/or has a better / twist on the recipe

Before posting please actually make the drink and try it

Take 2-3 paper thin sliced cucumbers and put them in the bottom of a rock / old fashion glass

pour a small amount of simple syrup (1:1 ratio) to cover the bottom of the glass and muddle the cucumbers

add ice

Then add 2 oz of Hendrick's Gin
3/4 oz (approx) of St Germain Elderflower liquor
1-2 oz of club soda to taste, start off with 1 oz then add if you feel you need it - add pino first

A splash of pino grigio wine (makes a subtle difference for balance do not skip this part - if you are leaving out the wine i generally increase the club soda)

Lemon Wedge squeezed into the drink and then dropped in, stir gently

sip and enjoy
