Cucumber and Thyme Martini

I’m getting a bit tired of the super sweet cocktails that are popular right now.

The savory cocktails have come into [and out of] favor in the past and I miss them.

Heck, one of my favorite cocktails is a Bloody Mary and if that drink is sweet then you’re doing something wrong.Clock

This recipe is for a cucumber and thyme martini [two flavors I LOVE] and it includes and interesting ingredient [gomme] that you might have a hard time finding so you might as well make it yourself.

The Cocktail Chronicles has a play-by-play recipe for gomme and you should check it out if you want to make this cocktail RIGHT.

Cucumber and Thyme Martini

Ingredients:

  • Zubrowka bison grass vodka
  • citrus vodka
  • 2 inch piece of cucumber
  • a sprig of thyme
  • lemon juice
  • gomme
  • ice

Directions:

Muddle the thyme and cucumber along with the gomme in the bottom of a glass.

Add everything else and the top of your cocktail shaker and shake until the mixture is good and cold.

Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a bit of thyme.
