Pati has tons of fun in her kitchen creating a full menu featuring the perfect blend of Italian and Mexican cuisine. Two cuisines that aside from having a lot in common, have managed to mingle in Mexican homes for centuries.
Martini de Pepino
Makes 1 Martini
– 1 1/2 ounce gin
– 1 ounce limoncello
– 1 slice of lemon to macerate
– 1 slice of cucumber to macerate
– 1/2 ounce simple syrup
– 1 tablespoon diced cucumber
In an empty shaker or martini mixer, combine the gin, limoncello, lemon and cucumber slices, and the syrup. Mix and macerate all the ingredients for about 5 minutes. If making a large quantity, let it sit in the refrigerator in a pitcher for up to 12 hours.
Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 1 minute. Strain and pour the liquid into a chilled martini glass. Decorate the martini with the small pieces of cucumber and a spiral of cucumber skin.
