Cucumber Martini at Luxor's Aurora?

OK, I am kicking myself for not looking at the ingredient list again after tasting the Cucumber Martini at Luxor's Aurora bar. I don't even remember the exact name of the drink. It was very light and refreshing, but definitely a strong drink. I am pretty sure it had rock candy syrup in it, it was served in a martini glass garnished with only a cucumber slice, and it was perfectly clear. This sounds close, but is lacking the rock candy syrup:
It is possibly the same, but I am not convinced.

I don't even need proportions, but I would love to know what was in it. I have done Google searches and have found widely varying recipes for cucumber martinis.

Any ideas?

  1. I was in Alantic City for dinner at Doc's and they had a cucumber martini on the black board list - the bartender was nice enough to give me a taste and it was awesome!
    He muddled the cucumber, added simple syrup and sour? then a good gin and mixed and strained into a glass - sorry no idea as to the portion sizes, wish I had paid more attention but will try to duplicate at home! It was without a doubt the most refreshing and completely surprising drink ever!
