Cucumber Citrus Martini

These cucumbers won’t get pickled, but you might

We got this idea from the Greenhouse Grill in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We didn’t try their drink, opting for a mimosa and beer instead, but tucked away the idea to try at home. Sure it’s a bit summery, but our fall feels a lot like summer. If you’re ever at the restaurant try the buffalo burger and the quinoa salad.

Cucumber Citrus Martini

  • 2 ounces cucumber vodka
  • 1 ounce cucumber liqueur
  • juice from half a lime
  • juice from half a lemon
  • cucumber slices

Pour liquors and juice into a shaker with ice. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cucumber slices.


About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
