Bad Decisions owner John Reusing made a name for himself with off beat drinks such as the Cucumber Dill Gin-and-Tonic.

His inspiration? Cucumber dill happens to be the flavor of a dip Reusing likes.

"I was like, ‘If it's good enough to dip potato chips in, I could probably make something delicious to drink with it,' " he said.

Reusing played around with the ingredients some, searching for gins which would bring out the dill and cucumber's natural flavors.

Here is Reusing's recipe for the drink:
Cucumber Dill Gin and Tonic
In a rocks glass gently muddle 2 sprigs of fresh dill
Add three long, skinny slices of cucumber
Fill with ice, then add:
3/4 oz. of Hendrick's Gin
3/4 oz. Hayman's Old Tom Gin
Fill with tonic water
Add two drops of Gioiello Nonino Citrus Tree Honey Spirit on top of the drink
