Happy hour: Mint, Cucumber, and Vodka Cocktails by Martha Stewart


Oh Martha, you really can do now wrong (well, other than those brief legal issues you had a little while back, but it only took us a cupcake or two to get over that!).  And seeing as Australia’s Indian Summer seems to be continuing we thought it was time for a nice, cold (very important!!), TGIF drink.



  • 2 English cucumbers
  • Small ice cubes
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 2 to 3 limes)
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) vodka
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) Cointreau


  1. Cut 4 thin spears from 1 cucumber, and reserve for garnish. Peel remaining cucumbers, and quarter them lengthwise. Scrape out seeds with a spoon, and discard. Coarsely chop cucumbers, then puree in a food processor until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add mint, sugar, and lime juice, and shake. Add 3/4 cup cucumber juice, the vodka, and Cointreau, and shake. Strain into 4 glasses filled with ice. Garnish each cocktail with a cucumber spear.

Before launching in 2007 I worked for a whole bunch of women's glossies both here and in the UK including Shop Til You Drop, New Woman (RIP), (also RIP), Cosmopolitan UK, and I even had a column in FHM (RI... I might be jinxed!). And before all that I was listing shopping as my number one hobby from about the age of five.

These sound similar to the gin soldiers we used to get after our bloody mary's with our boozey breakfasts - nothing like a smashed cucumber cocktail!


Ohhh thanks for the inspiration...I might have one of these shortly 🙂


Im salivating already ... I think it might be time for an afternoon drink 😛
