Back Porch Beverages-Cucumber Martini

This week we went with something light and refreshing. We are making Cucumber Martini's. You will need the following ingredients:

2 English Cucumbers (or use regular ones just peel and seed them)
crushed ice
1 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
2 tsp of granulated sugar
3 tbsp of fresh lime juice
4oz vodka
1oz triple sec

Peel and deseed the cucumbers.
Puree them in a food processor and strain the solid parts. In the shaker muddle the mint, add sugar, a handful of crushed ice, lime, cucumber puree, vodka and triple sec. Shake and serve. This recipe makes enough for two. If you like them strong you may want to increase the amount of vodka.

Serve and enjoy!

  1. You didn't say if you liked them!! Sounds yummy to me. Worth trying??

  2. I will start giving my commentary. This one has been my favorite so far because it isn't really sweet or tart. It is very refreshing.
