Lemon Cucumber Vodka Gimlet – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Lately Vodka Gimlets have been my drink of choice.  Maybe it is the smooth lime flavor or the ease in the way it goes down, but I just love them.  I thought I would make my own version of a Vodka Gimlet by adding fresh Lemon Cucumber.  If you haven’t tasted a lemon cucumber, you don’t know what you are missing.  These little spheres are deep yellow in color and the flesh looks similar to a regular cucumber. However, the taste is slightly citrusy, which is perfect in this Lemon Cucumber Vodka Gimlet.  If you can’t get your hands on a Lemon Cucumber, use a regular cucumber for a fun twist on a traditional Gimlet.

Ingredients

1/2 lime

2 slices, lemon cucumber

1 teaspoon agave nectar

3 ounces vodka, your choice

ice

(Makes 1 Cocktail)

1.  Squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lime in a martini shaker or jar.
