Potent Potables – Garden to Glass: Cucumber Mint Martini


Shaker ready to fill a martini glass with cucumber garnish.

Cooking and canning salsa was fun and satisfying. So much so that Beth kept us on the garden to gullet roll with a slightly out of the box way of using fresh mint and cucumber.

Beth surprised me Saturday afternoon with martini’s made from fresh mint and a cucumber. Both from our garden. Imagine that!

We introduce to you the: Cucumber Mint Martini.

6 sprigs of mint, one medium sized cucumber sliced thin and 4 shots of either Gin or Vodka. Poured over ice in a shaker then strained into 2 martini glasses. Drink.

We couldn’t decide whether to have Vodka or Gin so…one of each!

Our mint plant from a cutting that Beth got from our friend Lacey. Since moving it indoors, it has flourished.
The cucumber in back was the perfect size for our drink.
