Cucumber Vodka Mojito

A visual how-to guide to create a twist on your favourite cocktail—the mojito!

Let's Get The Party Started!

What You'll Need:

Ingredients:

  • Vodka

  • Sparkling Lemon Juice

  • Cucumber

  • Lemon

  • Lime

  • Mint Leaves

  • Ice

Tools:

  • Muddler

  • Cocktail Shaker

  • Vegetable Peeler

  • Cocktail Pick

Serving Size: 1


Let's Muddle The Magic!

1. Slice cucumbers and place them in

your glass of choice (I prefer a tall

glass).

2. Add some mint leaves to the glass.

3. Use the muddler to break down

the essences of the cucumber and

mint. This will make the perfect

base for your mojito.

Prep the Show-Stopper—the Garnish!

4. Peel the skin of your cucumber

using a vegetable peeler.

5. Once you've peeled off the skin,

repeat this process to get a long

strip of cucumber. (Ensure to apply

pressure while peeling to increase

the thickness)

6. Fold this stripe in an accordion-like

shape.

7. Secure the shape by inserting a

cocktail pick.

8. Reconfigure the shape of the

garnish by spacing out the folds.


Let's Get Crafting!

9. Add your ice to the cocktail shaker.

10. Based on how strong you would

like your mojito, play with your

vodka to sparkling lemon juice

ratio. (My suggestion: 60/40

vodka).

11. Add your desired amount of

vodka and sparkling lemon juice

to the shaker.

12. Shake, shake, shake!


Final Touches!

13. Add ice to your serving glass.

14. Strain your cocktail into the glass

with the muddled ingredients.

15. Using a tall spoon, stir the

ingredients together.

16. Add your garnishes! I added in

the cucumber crafter garnish as

well as slices of lemon and mint

leaves.

Happy St. Patrick's Day &

Happy Sipping!
