We love this drink almost as much as we love this hilarious scene from the Queen Latifah/Steve Martin movie, Bringing Down the House. The line with this cocktail's namesake is at 1:09 of the clip.

We discovered this drink at the 2012 Science of Cocktails event at the Exploratorium. This refreshing drink is perfect for a hot afternoon or for a bridal shower. The proportions below make two cocktails.
1
Combine all ingredients (except ginger beer, rosebuds, and cucumber) into the cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and double strain into serving glass.
2
Stir in the ginger beer and double strain into serving glasses. Splash with additional cold ginger beer. (If you top it with room temp ginger beer, the cocktail will no longer be ice cold.)
3
Garnish with dried rosebuds and/or cucumber slices.
