Drinking up the last days of summer.


In my family our summer starts the day school is out and it ends the day school begins! Well school started yesterday and you can find me squeezing out as much summer as I can get.

3 thick cucumber slices, 2 1/2 ounces vodka, 1\2 ounce dry vermouth, 1 cup ice, 1-3 thin cucumber slices

Use a muddled or wooden spoon to muddle, or crush, the thick cucumber slices to bring out more of their flavor.  Pour in vodka and dry vermouth.  Swirl just a bit to combine, then add ice. Shake and shake and shake.  Strain the mixture in a glass, add the unmuddled thin cucumber and drink up (Boire)!  Yes, Boire is French for drink up!
