midori
splash of grenadine

Cucumber Martinis
A Cool & Simple Summer Cocktail

Cucumber Martinis are as cool and refreshing as cucumbers themselves. Like all martinis, they pack a punch. The first one is divine; the second will make a third seem like a good idea which, I assure you, it is not.
In a cocktail shaker, combine 2 1/2 oz. Cucumber Vodka1,vodka, or gin with 1/2 oz. dry vermouth, three or four slices of cucumber (any type of cucumber2 works just fine), and at least 1 cup of ice. You can also add a grind or two of freshly ground black pepper, if you're feeling kicky.
Shake and shake and shake. Seriously, shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds (this may seem like a long time). You're not just mixing the ingredients, you're trying to melt some of the ice into the cocktail to soften its edges and blend the flavors.
Strain into a martini glass (or vessel of your choice). Add a slice or two (or three) of fresh, unbruised cucumber and serve immediately.
I had my first one...I AM IN LOVE!!!!
and I am a beer gal.....LOL

Nancy, first glad you enjoyed the mistletoe martini, secondly, cucumber martini? Sounds very interesting, is the recipe posted on JAP?????? I like the sounds of it and cucumbers are a "negative calorie" food so I am sure the martini should also be counted as such! LOL and I wish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
