Cucumber Basil Martini

1 Comment

Cucumber Basil Martini (makes 2)

5 oz. Cucumber Infused Vodka

3-4 basil leaves

lime wedge

cucumber, coarse salt, pepper, lime zest for garnish

Muddle the basil with ice in your cocktail shaker. Add the cucumber vodka, a squeeze of lime, and shake it up. Run the edge of the lime wedge around the rim of the cocktail glasses, and dip into a salt/pepper mixture. Pour liquid into glasses, and garnish with a cucumber slice and lime zest if desired.

This cocktail was tasty and refreshing. I have a bit of a “salt-tooth” and loved the salt and pepper on the rim. That could easily be omitted if you don’t love salt as much as I do.

Cheers!
