One of my friends said to try cucumber vodka when I sent out the SOS for cucumber recipes. I love the cucumber vodka you can buy at the liquor store, so I thought, why not!
Slice cucumbers and remove some of the seeds. Add cucumbers to a quart sized mason jar. Pour vodka over the cucumbers, until jar is almost full, and put on the lid.
Every day, give the jar a light shake, or just turn it upside down and back. Let it sit for a week or 2.
When you are ready, strain the vodka. I don't have a mesh strainer, so I had to get creative. I used tulle that I held on with a rubber band around the neck of the jar. I funneled it back into the vodka bottle.
Now that you have cucumber vodka, you can make a few drinks! Here are 2 of my favorite mixtures:
- cucumber vodka and lemonade
- cucumber vodka, tonic, lime, and mint
