In This Recipe


Cucumber Dill Infused Vodka

  1. Add cucumbers and dill to a large sealable container. I used a large mason jar. Add the vodka and let it sit for about 6-7 days, shaking the container once a day.
  2. Strain cucumbers and dill and enjoy. The leftover vodka should be kept in a cool, dark place and is good for at least a couple months.

The Cocktail

  1. In a cocktail shaker combine ingredients with a handful of ice, and pour into a chilled martini glass. Or you can combine ingredients and then pour over ice.
  2. Garnish with a pickle, or some olives, or both!
