Perfect Summer Martini

Some of you asked from my last post (don't forget to enter my giveaway!) what a Cucumber Cosmo is. It is a fruit twist on a Cosmopolitan. I don't typically like fruit martinis - they tend to be too sweet for me. This one, however is super refreshing. Especially if drank on a hot day with the fan on, sitting on my deck, reading.

So, to share with you, here is my recipe.
Enjoy!

Cucumber Cosmopolitan

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • 2 oz grey goose vodka
  • splash cranberry juice
  • 1 teaspoon Simple Syrup
  • cucumber slice
Preparation
  • Muddle the cucumber with the Simple Syrup in a cocktail shaker.
  • Add vodka and cranberry juice (you can add more or less cranberry to your taste).

  • Add ice, and shake vigorously.

  • Strain into a chilled martini glass.

  • Garnish with the reserved cucumber slice.

I sent Shasta my email address when she announced she was going private. I would love to have an invitation. Thanks for the information. I am so sorry that some hateful, jealous person did this to her. Her posts are always so great!
