One of the highlights of the honeymoon (besides my beautiful wife) was the cocktail I got at the Lagoon Restaurant in St Regis Bora Bora. They called it Cucumbertini or something like that but to me it was just a Cucumber Southside. Gin has really grown on me and this is probably one of my favorite drinks now.
