Cucumbertini

Yields: 2 large glasses

Ingredients:

  • 3 fresh petit English cucumbers, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp celery, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Monin’s Cuaracao Triple Sec
  • Juice squeezed from 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp caster sugar (optional, I did not use)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 cup cold water
  • 6-8 ice-cubes, a couple more to add to the glasses

Directions:

  1. Take cucumber and celery in a blender. Pour 1/4 cup cold water and blend til it is pureed. Take a sieve and strain the puree.
  2. Pour strained liquid back to the blender. Add triple sec, lemon juice, caster sugar, 1 cup cold water, ice-cubes and blitz it. Pass the potion through a sieve again. Your cucumbertini is ready to be served on the rocks! Garnish with a lemon wedge.

*Spoon the foam out from the cucumbertini before pouring in glasses if you prefer a clear concoction.
