Serves 1

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cucumber
Pinch of cilantro
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup (same as page 22 without cinnamon)
2 ounces cucumber-infused vodka (see recipe)
Garnish: cucumber slice

In a cocktail shaker, muddle together cucumber, cilantro, lime juice and syrup. Add vodka and ice. Shake and double strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cucumber slice.

Cucumber-infused Vodka

1-2 English cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 bottle (750ml) of Texas vodka

Place chopped cucumber pieces into a large air-tight glass jar. Pour in vodka and seal. Store at room temperature for 4-7 days. When finished, strain the infused vodka into its original bottle or decorative bottle of your choice. Cap and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
