Coconut Cucumber Martini

06th Jun 2015

Coconut Cucumber Martini

No cocktail can really be that healthy, but as this one is as good (for you) as?it gets! Simple, refreshing and so delicious, these might be a little too easy?to drink!

Serves 4

1 Cucumber
4 Shots of Hendricks Gin
600ml of Coconut Water

Step 1: Chop your cucumber in half and juice one half (If you don’t have a juicer?you can whizz it up in a blender and squeeze it through cheese cloth or use?a sieve).

Step 2: Use the other half of the cucumber as garnish. I like to spiralize mine and?twist it around the inside of the glass before pouring the liquid in, then it?floats up to the top in gorgeous swirls.

Step 3: Add 4 shots of Hendrick’s gin to a cocktail shaker with 4 shots of the fresh?cucumber juice and some ice and shake it well.

Step 4: Divide the cucumber gin evenly between your 4 glasses, top each with?coconut water up to the brim and serve!
