Ah, Indian summers. This is the perfect martini to cool you down on these final hot days before the coolness of fall settles upon us. Besides being a delicious treat, this concoction boasts health benefits that are reason enough to indulge… That is, if you need a reason?!
Both cucumber and green tea are great for your skin, so this will give you a healthy glow. Green tea offers up endless positive side-effects including weight loss, cholesterol control, and it may even help you prevent diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.
We think we’ll have two!
Organic is cool.
1. Brew your tea and let it cool.
2. Make the cucumber infused vodka by muddling cucumber with vodka and letting it sit for a few hours. We used our handy Vodka Zinger to save time!
3. In a shaker with ice, combine the tea, vodka and honey syrup.
4. Strain into a martini glass and add the cucumber slices.
Editor's note: A super-cool thanks to DAVIDsTEA for the tea.
