Let’s Make A Cucumber Wasabi Gimlet
You need cucumber juice. You can either use a juicer for the cucumbers, or a box grater. Either way, begin by scrubbing your cucumber to remove any wax and cut off the ends. We also recommend using organic cucumbers.
If using the box grater, grate your cucumber using the large holes into a strainer lined with cheesecloth. Really squeeze the cheesecloth to get as much juice as possible. One medium cucumber (@200 grams) should yield roughly 8 ounces of juice.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
And while you are juicing cucumbers, check out our Cucumber Lime Mint Agua Fresca, too.
