This cucumber martini is accented with the lively flavors of fresh basil and lime, for a taste as refreshing as it is refined.
- 3 inches Cucumber (skinned, seeded, and chopped into chunks)
- 2 Basil leaves (torn)
- ½ oz Simple Syrup
- 2 oz 45th Parallel Vodka
- ½ oz fresh Lime Juice
Place cucumber chunks into a cocktail shaker with torn basil and simple syrup, and muddle to release juice from cucumber.
Add vodka, lime juice, and a handful of ice to cocktail shaker, cover with lid and shake vigorously.
Once the exterior of the shaker is frosty cold, pour into a martini glass. Garnish with basil and cucumber slice (optional) and serve.
