    Try this with Skinny Girl Cucumber vodka, muddled mint, and fresh lime juice. But hit where I tend bar. We do it with muddled cucumber in potato vodka as well. Depending on your prefernce. Either way it is very refreshing!

    I had my first cucumber martini at Keswick Hall, outside of Charlottsville, Va. So wonderful, I called the bartender and he gave me the recipe. 2 parts vodka (cucumber) 1part Hendricks gin a splash of lillet blanc. A slice of cucumber. Put together in a cocktail shaker, shake, and pour. The best thing------EVER!!!!!

    I am definitely a gin fan, and recently tried a cucumber martini at an excellent restaurant in lacrosse wisconsin. Someone had mentioned a substitute for the simple syrup, and I have found with drinks requiring sugar or simple syrup that either substituting stevia, maple or agave syrup is terrific! Adjust the sweetness to your taste - I do this with all the drinks I make and they are the bomb!

    The green lantern San Antonio TX makes the best cucumber martini. The rim is dipped in chile sal con limon concoction. Refreshing yet savory...nice

    I'm confused by some of these comments - LeeAllen said "You can bruise Gin. That's why Bond had them shaken." but then followed that by "But you don't shake a Gin martini...that can bruise." So how the heck to do you make a gin martini?

    I had my first Cucumber & Mint Martini at Urban Tavern in San Francisco. This is such a fantastic drink, it's become my favorite.
