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.

 

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  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.
