So maybe add it in place of vinegar when making marinated cucumber salad for the XMas smorgasbord...or infuse some first with cuke and dill and use it once infused for the marinade...hmmm...now that might be good...

I hear you. It took me 25 years to try vodka again.

I'm a gin lover but think a gin fruit salad sounds unappetizing. But WTH? Might as well try it. .... Or send the bottle to me!

You would still need an acid.

Cukes and dill with cukes might work.

But it also might put Aunt Edna into a coma. Hahahaha

The standard is vinegar-sugar-LOTS of fresh dill-S&P, so I am thinking the infused gin, sugar, (or maybe maple syrup this year...) lime juice, S&P might be nice...this is the "Scandinavian" style marinated cucumber salad...

I'm s Svenska Flicka myself!

Although I know you hate it, taste it. The lime and gin will alter the flavor. You might be better off with vinegar instead of lime.

Same here, Jenny! One bad experience...

I would give it another try as a drink, CWS! Adult palates are different than college experimentation. Am thinking a Pink Lady, from my old bartending days, might be another way to drink it. And it includes an egg!

I just think gin would not lend itself to anything food related. IMHO.

Infuse the gun with cucumbers or cukes and mint and give it away as a gift.

Live and learn. Thanks for the correction. I guess I figured since they were both clear...
