Cucumber-Mint Infused Vodka Recipe

 

Cucumber? Mint? Vodka? You might be thinking, “…ick, what a strange flavor combo”.  However, this potion has long been a household favorite and many a friend has partaken of this beverage with absolute delight, calling it “liquid summer”. And it’s so unbelievably easy to make it’s almost stupid easy.

Cucumber-Mint Infused Vodka
Instructions
  1. Pour vodka into large jar.
  2. Peel & seed cucumbers, chop into large chunks and add to vodka.
  3. Cover tightly with saran wrap, add lid and let sit for approximately 4 days.
  4. Add fresh mint, cover and let sit another 3 days.
  5. Because the mint is a stronger flavor than cucumber, it takes much less time to steep flavor into the vodka.
  6. After you have been "cooking" the mint and cukes for a good week, get ready to bottle your potion.
  7. Using a fine mesh sieve and a coffee filter, begin straining your vodka into a large pitcher.
  8. Funnel into 375ml clear wine bottles and cork.
  9. I find I can usually get 8-9 finished bottles per batch.
  10. Very often I will save the booze-soaked cukes for cocktail garnishment.
