As John Kessler reported yesterday, Relish Restaurant in Roswell plans to close after New Year’s Eve. Because Relish is located in my neck of the woods, I have been there more than a time or two and have a couple of favorites there. So, my first thought upon hearing the news was, “Oh no! The cucumber lemonade martini!”
How I adore the fresh, rejuvenating feeling I get from the cucumber lemonade at Relish. I hated to see this gem vanish at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve along with the restaurant itself.
I mentioned this concern to the folks at Relish and they reassured me that the ever-popular cucumber lemonade and martini would make their way onto the menu of Condiment Group’s newest Mexican concept, Pico Auténtico. But to allay my fears, they graciously agreed to share the recipe.
Now you can make it at home for yourself and a dozen friends. Note that the recipe makes about a gallon.

Makes about 1 gallon.
To make it a Martini, add 2 ounces of Vodka to 6 ounces of chilled lemonade and shake.
Now off to get a juicer for those cucumbers…
