Ingredients

Cucumber Mix:

  • 1 chopped cucumber
  • 10 oz. simple syrup
  • 10 oz. lime juice
  • 8 mint leaves

Cucumber Martini:

  • 1 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 2 oz. cucumber mix
  • Agave nectar
  • Kosher salt
  • Tajin
  • Tamarind syrup*
  • Cucumber slices, to garnish

Instructions

  1. To make the cucumber mix, add cucumber, simple syrup, lime juice and mint leaves to a blender, and blend until smooth. This is enough mix for 12 - 14 martinis.
  2. To make the Cucumber Martini, add vodka and cucumber mix to a shaker with ice. Add a dash of agave nectar, salt and Tajin, cap the shaker, then shake until well-chilled.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of Tajin to a small plate with a small pinch of kosher salt. Wet the rim of a chilled martini glass with tamarind syrup. Turn the wet rim through the Tajin-salt mixture until evenly coated.
  4. Strain the drink into the prepared martini glass, and garnish with cucumber slices.

Recipe Notes

* You can purchase tamarind syrup online or in a Mexican market. You can also make the syrup at home. I'm sure you could also use just lime juice here if you can't find tamarind.
