What to do on a rainy day weekend after Lydia’s bedtime? Experiment with leftover ingredients and martini recipes! I had a ton of ingredients left over from our sangria party…….and the result? This delicious cucumber mint martini! It’s refreshing, a little sweet, and the color is just my favorite. It looks stunning in a martini glass. Want to impress your guests? This drink just looks fancy.
Cucumber Mint Martini
two seedless cucumbers
two teaspoons of sugar
Peel both cucumbers. Slice and set pieces aside for garnishing. Blend the rest of the cucumbers in a blender then strain into a bowl.
Combine cucumber juice, two jiggers of vodka, two teaspoons of sugar in a cocktail shaker.
Pour over muddled mint leaves and garnish with cucumber slices.
Serves two (or one exhausted mommy).
