What the Hell is a Pickling Cuke?

Real Life of an MSW


I looked at the sign, then at the pickling cuke and thought it looked like a cucumber. Not one to have food remorse, I tossed one in my basket. In my kitchen I cut a few slices and popped a slice into my mouth. Damn, it was a cucumber (my produce guy gets a gold star for marketing). Not one to waste food, I thought of that idiom “When life gives you cucumbers makes cocktails!” Okay, maybe that’s not a true idiom, but Cheers!

  • 1.5 oz. cucumber vodka
  • 4-6 slices of pickling cuke
  • 1/4 lime, sliced
  • 1 bottle of Mr. Q Cumber
  • 6 mint leaves

Methodology: Add mint, lime, vodka, and cukes to shaker and muddle. Pour mixture over glass filled with ice and cucumber slices. Top with Mr. Q. Cumber. Stir, let set for a few minutes for the flavors to enhance, and enjoy.
