I have a new favorite cocktail! Oh yes, this baby is the perfect summer martini. My friend Janet has been telling me, but it took me way to long to listen. This is the perfect crisp, just a little sweet vodka martini to enjoy through out the hot summer nights. It will make you as cool as a cucumber…
With the amount of cucumbers in our summer gardens, there is no reason not to put those cylindrical edible fruit to good use.
- 2 ounces Vodka
- ½ ounce Lime Juice (1/2 lime)
- 2-3 slices of Fresh Cucumber
- 2 mint leaves
- ½ ounce Simple Syrup
- In a martini shaker, add 1 cucumber slice and 1 mint leaf and crush with spoon. Add fresh ice vodka, lime juice and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a cucumber slice and 1 mint leaf.
