Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker with lid and strainer or fine mesh sieve
  • Muddler

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup cucumber cut into ⅛“ thick slices, plus more for garnish (alternatively, can use cucumber rounds for garnish)
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice from ½ medium lime
  • 2 oz gin such as The Botanist
  • ½ oz dry Vermouth
  • ½ oz St Germain
  • Mint or basil optional garnishes

Instructions

  • Muddle the cucumber. Place cucumber slices in the cup of a cocktail shaker along with ½ oz fresh lime juice, then muddle to release the juices.
  • Shake or stir the martini. Fill the cocktail shaker halfway with ice, then add 2 oz gin, ½ oz dry Vermouth, and ½ oz St Germain. Shake well to aerate or stir.
