Fresh Cucumber Foretaste

By • April 21, 2010 6 Comments

Author Notes: I created this drink for a large dinner party, and couldn't refill glasses fast enough! It's really simple, refreshing, and a great start to a meal-I served it in small shot glasses with the hors d'oeuvres. Feel free to add a splash of really good vodka or Bacardi to this one, to make it an 'adult beverage'. Mariya


Makes 1 quart

  • 15 cucumbers-pealed
  • 1 cup fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  1. Using a juicer, juice the cucumbers.
  2. Using a mortar and pestle, grind all of the mint well (until the pieces are very tiny).
  3. Add mint, yogurt, and sugar to the cucumber juice. Mix well (by hand or in a blender) and strain.
  4. Refrigerate and serve cold (optional: add a splash of vodka or Bacardi if desired).
