Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Cucumber Cocktail

Overrun with cucumbers? It’s much more fun to drink than eat them and this cocktail tastes equally refreshing with vodka, gin, or white rum. Peel and cut a couple of large cucumbers into small chunks then puree them in a food processor or with a stick blender. Line a strainer with cheese cloth or a coffee filter and drain the cucumber juice into a bowl by pressing down on the pureed solids.

Squeeze a half a lime and a tablespoon of sugar into the bowl of juice and stir until the sugar dissolves. Chill before serving. Some chopped mint would make it even more refreshing…just the thing to cool you down on a hot summer afternoon.
