While wandering through my local farmer’s market recently, I noticed one of the produce vendors was giving out samples of a gnarled, striped, cucumber-like fruit. I had never seen this type of cucumber before, so I made my way over for a taste. After further investigation, I found out that they were Armenian cucumbers! Fresh, mild and crisp, these Armenian cucumbers taste similar to regular cucumbers; however, they are actually in the melon family. With thoughts of refreshing Summer cocktails in mind, I decided to purchase one with the sole intention of making a fresh batch of Armenian Cucumber Infused Vodka.
