as per my previous post, we like to make our own ingredients at quoin, and though the citrus was in response to an existing demand, i also wanted to make a cucumber vodka, because a) i think it will be delicious and fun to play with and b) because i think people will like it.
and, as with my previous post, it’s really freakin’ easy to do.
2 bottles vodka
2 english cucumbers
peel and thinly slice the cucumbers (peeling is really important; the rind has a lot of bitterness into it, which you’re not going to want in your final product). pour in the vodka and seal the jar.
i set this going about a week ago, and tasted it last night. the flavor is coming through, but i think it’s going to need another week before it really starts to shine. more bulletins as events warrant.
