1 750-ml bottle dry gin
1 medium cucumber, sliced
1 medium lemon, zested
3 oz strawberry-thyme syrup (made using the standard method)
3 tbsp dried rose petals

Combine in a mason jar and store in a cool place for 7-10 days, agitating daily.  Strain through a fine sieve and keep chilled.

I created this one mostly out of a jealous dislike of Hendrick's gin, which although tasty is both over-advertised and over-priced.  It's definitely sweeter than its namesake, but it makes one hell of a gin-and-tonic...
