How To Make As Cool As Zeta Cocktail

As Cool As Zeta Cocktail. Expert cocktail maker Mauro Pisano shows us how to make an ‘As Cool As Zeta' - a gin martini flavoured with cucumber. Experience our As Cool As Zeta Cocktail.

Step 1: You will need:

  • 1 knife
  • 1 chopping board
  • 1 blender
  • 1 cocktail shaker
  • 1 fine cocktail strainer
  • 1 martini glass
  • 1 25ml shot measure
  • 1 50ml shot measure
  • 1 5ml bar spoon / teaspoon
  • 1 measuring jug
  • some measuring spoons

Step 2: Chilled martini glass

Either put the martini glass in the freezer, or fill it with ice, add a little water, and leave it to one side to chill.

Step 3: Cucumber

Use your knife to finely peel half the cucumber. Leave a little of the cucumber skin on to give the drink extra flavour and a light green hue. Don't throw all of the skin away - save a little to garnish the drink.

Step 4: Add the ingredients

Dice the cucumber and add to the blender.
Add 50ml of gin
Next, a couple of coriander leaves
Add one teaspoon of lemon juice
and one teaspoon of sugar syrup.

Step 5: Blend

Turn on the blender and blend for 10 seconds.

Step 6: Pour

Add the contents of the blender to the mixing glass.

Step 7: Ice

Fill the mixing glass with ice cubes

Step 8: Shake

Put the top half of the cocktail shaker on. Slap it down firmly to seal. Hold the top and bottom, and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds.

Step 9: Handy Hint

When there is condensation on the outside of the shaker and it feels very cold, then it's mixed.

Step 10: Release

Tap the side of the shaker to loosen the two halves. Release the top by rocking it back and forth.

Step 11: Double Strain

Open up the shaker and use the cocktail strainer and the fine strainer over the martini glass. Tap the fine strainer to encourage the drink through.

Step 12: Garnish

Add a little of the left over cucumber skin to garnish.

Step 13: Serve
