Well, first, why? The answer – I’ve had cucumber in a few drinks over time and always found that it added a really refreshing touch to whatever it was in. So, I thought I’d do it myself and then see what kind of fun cocktails I could come up with.
So, I tried to make it a couple of times in different ways and didn’t get much juice. Doesn’t seem that hard, so I tried doing it a little different. The below worked great and I got a lot of juice out of it.
First, I cut the ends off 2 cucumbers and peeled them. Next, I blended them down as much as I could. Then I put the blended cucumber through a strainer and the remainder became fantastic cucumber juice.
What to do with it? You can use it for lemonade or a whole assortment of cocktails…great w/ Vodka, Kentucky Bourbon, even Mezcal. One warning is it doesn’t keep very long, so make it and use it within a couple of days. Cocktail recipes on the way…
