|The seeded cucumber spears marinated in vodka |
for one week on board s/v Rainy Days.
|The cucumber spears were removed (foreground) and the vodka was strained |
using a paper coffee filter as we transferred it into a clean jar.
|Two cucumber-infused vodka and tonics on ice on a Friday evening |
make up for a long hard week of work.
The vodka assumed a delightful very light greenish-yellow color and a delicate cucumber fragrance. We put ice cubes in a glass, added a shot of the cucumber-infused vodka, and filled the remainder of the glass with diet tonic water. As the carbonated tonic water released its small bubbles, the cucumber fragrance became a little more apparent but the flavor was very mild. We added a cucumber slice as garnish to complete our cocktail.
