Cucumber Shots

A cucumber can be used for more than just salads!

Cut up the cucumber into 2- to 3-inch (6 to 7 cm) pieces. Use a teaspoon or a melon baller and hollow out the top portion of each cucumber piece. Put the cucumber pieces on a plate and fill with vodka or other alcohol. Use a few cucumber strips as stirrers. After drinking the vodka, you can eat your glass...not bad!
