Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Honeydew & Cucumber Martini

I bought a cute little honeydew at the market the other day - I really love the flavor of a good honeydew. But instead of cutting it up for breakfast or a snack, I juiced the whole thing. Surprisingly not as much juice as I'd expected - not as much as a watermelon of the same size. But enough for what I wanted (and I have big martini glasses).

Honeydew & Cucumber Martini
3 parts fresh honeydew juice
3 parts cucumber vodka (I used Pearl Cucumber Vodka)

Add the juice & vodka to a shaker with ice, shake vigorously and pour into a martini glass.


  1. Sounds DELICIOUS!! Great on a hot summer day (or hot autumn day, like it has been lately!) ;)
