All the single ladies!!! All the single ladies!!!

Happy Friday!! I’m so happy this week is over. To be honest, it was kind of a breeze, but I have SO MUCH work next week, that I’m going to suck up every ounce of free time that I can, and, well, maybe a few cocktails 🙂

So, to conclude this week, I’m leaving you guys with a refreshing cucumber beveRAGE!

Girls, fire up your Bullet, it’s time to go on a BLENDER!! Hope you have the lawn chairs set up and your phone on silent! This one is for you and your besties.

Introducing, the Cucumber Kiwi Cocktail!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 chopped cucumber
  • 1 whole kiwi, chopped into slices
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cubes of ice
  • 1.5 ounces cucumber-infused vodka (recipe follows, but regular ol’ vodka works just as well)

Throw everything in that first list into your tall Bullet cup and blend with your cross blade, baby! Come on now, it’s Friday, I don’t want to give you too much work! You can also, if you wish, strain this mixture into a glass for a cleaner beverage, (hint: use the shaker top) but I sort of like the pulp 🙂

Now if you’re feeling super fancy, and I often am, rim your glasses by dipping it into some lemon juice and then a mixture of 1:1 salt/sugar. Garnish with a slice of that cuke!

If you’re feeling adventurous enough to make the cucumber-infused vodka, it’s so easy!!

Take a 750ml bottle of your favorite vodka, slice up thin slices of English cucumber. I prefer this variety for the infusing part, because the taste is a bit more crisp and it will take less time to add flavor, but I would suggest regular ol’ cukes for the beverage itself. Anyway, add these slices into the bottle, it will take about 15 minutes to chop and insert the whole cuke, but is therapeutic, and as you can see, looks lovely when it’s done! I suggest letting it sit about three days, but honestly, a couple hours will probably do you just right.

Obviously, this is a party portion, so if you have a smaller bottle, just use less cucumber.

I wish you all a safe and fun weekend. I’ll see you next week with a new ingredient…..hmmm I wonder what it is!

Kisses!
