I recently discovered a new line of botanical vodkas from Ketel One. One of these is a
Cucumber Mint Vodka. I thought it would make a good “spa-like” martini..it tasted so fresh, just
like the water with cucumber and mint you get at a spa..except WAY better!!
If you drink a few you will definitely “sparkle”!
2 ounces Ketel One Botanical Cucumber & Mint Vodka
1/2 ounce St Germain elderflower liqueur
1 egg white (optional)
Slice of cucumber
3-4 mint leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon sugar/1 teaspoon salt, mixed together
Place the sugar/salt mixture on a plate. Wet the rim of a martini or coupe glass and dip to coat
in sugar/salt mixture.
In a shaker…muddle lime, cucumber, mint. Add vodka and St Germain…shake a few times.
Add egg white..shake 10 times.
Add ice, shake 20 times. Strain into glass.
