Review:

Cucumber has never tasted so good, helped by being vodka-laced and infused with notes of bison grass. The touch of sugar in this cocktail helps amplify flavours rather than sweetening the cocktail.

History:

There are many different Cucumber Martini recipes; this is mine - much improved in July 2023 thanks to a comment by Marco, a fellow Discerning Drinker (below).

Alcohol content:

  • 1.5 standard drinks
