When it comes to alcoholic beverages, I am not the most inventive or creative person in the mix (no pun intended). So, when my husband and I were in San Francisco for New Year’s at the St. Regis I figured why not try something other than my usual Vodka Soda.
I perused the drink menu and found something that I had never had before….Cucumber Vodka. I have always loved Raspberry and Blackberry Vodka, but never had I had the refreshing taste of Cucumber flavored Vodka. I ordered mine with soda, and my husband had the “Hiro-Tini,” which had Freshly Muddled Ginger & Cucumber, Ultimat Vodka, and Sake Served Up in a martini glass. He really enjoyed his, but I think I liked mine more! It was like being in a spa with the delicious cucumber water- intended for adults only! It has a subtle flavor, so the cucumber won’t overpower you in any way.
I haven’t been able to find Cucumber Vodka on many menus in the Los Angeles area, but keep your eyes out on your local cocktail menus. We did buy a bottle of Square One Organic Cucumber Vodka to keep on hand for parties and the random cocktail at home. Once you try this I assure you that you will enjoy it!
