Dirty Cucumber Martini

"Which of these is your usual grocery shopping style👇🏼🛒 ? A) My list is pretty much the same every week so my shopping trips are quick and efficient. B) I don’t really plan too far in advance so I find myself stopping at the store multiple times a week. C) What’s grocery shopping? I might grab the hot bar and a bottle of wine but it’s all about takeout and meals out. I used to totally be a B but I’ve gotten better at planning out meals and most of my shopping prior to this was done online. But I love my little stops to the store to peruse the produce section, excited to find new ingredients for inspiration for my next cocktail. Now that online shopping isn’t an option, trying to plan meals for the whole week in one store trip is such a struggle, so props to you if that have that down. We’ve been trying to go to the store as little as possible, but we braved the inevitable this week to safely stock up. Our shopping list is a little shorter than normal so we only pick up what we really need. Luckily, I’m making something with cucumber and olives this week, so I’ll use the leftovers to remake my favorite Cucumber Dirty Martini this weekend 🍸 !"

A Note from Feedfeed

Dirty gin martini! This classic cocktail is enhanced with fresh cucumber juice! Not to mention the briny flavor from the Castelvetrano olives. Can we get a round of these ASAP?
