I went out for a drink today, and because it is Mexican Independence Day, I decided to try a Mexican style drink. I ordered a cucumber martini, and it was delish! I thought it was so good that I came home and made a small batch to share with the hubby. He loved it too!

Cucumber Mojito


  • 1 tsp  water
  • 1 tsp  sugar
  • 4 limes (squeezed)
  • Salt
  • Tajin (or favorite chili powder)
  • 1 chilled cucumber ( thinly sliced)
  • water
  • 1 shot of vodka
  • ice

How to:

Mix the water and sugar and boil in low heat.  Let it simmer for a few moments while the sugar dissolves. Let it cool.

Put the chili/salt mix on a small bowl.  In a separate bowl squeeze the limes. You will dip your martini glass on the lime juice and wet the rim and then repeat on the chili/salt mix.  Set aside

Bring out your blend and mix the syrup, cucumbers, water and extra lime juice until smooth. Add a shot of  vodka and shake. Pour into martini glass and enjoy!
