Level III opening + a cucumber recipe

Green drinking

As I was picking the fallen houseplant leaf off the shag carpet, I wondered what it would taste like in a drink. (Who wouldn't?) I bit into it to find it reminded me of snap peas shells. Undeterred, I proceeded to experiment with a cocktail.

Intervention Inspiration
4 leaves of houseplant, with center veins removed
2 ounces cucumber vodka
1/2 ounce honey syrup
1/4 ounce lemon juice
pinch black pepper

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into cocktail glass.

The drink is disgusting, of course. And now I can't get the taste of houseplant out of my mouth.

I am glad to not be the only one who, on occasion, loads the mixing glass with wild ideas, shakes vigorously, just sure he'll be the talk of the mixosphere with this one... only to wind up dumping the result down the drain.

The true test: will you try a houseplant drink again with different proportions/ingredients? :P

Was anyone else reading the recipe, trying to taste it in your mind? Then Camper stings you with the punchline at the end. Doh!
