Drink of the Week: The Spring Thaw Martini

Hello, NowOmaha.com enthusiasts! As we step into the first week of March, we can sense the anticipation of spring just around the corner. To celebrate the transition from the frosty embrace of winter to the refreshing bloom of spring, we’re featuring a cocktail that symbolizes this beautiful change: The Spring Thaw Martini.

This cocktail merges the crispness of cucumber with the brightness of mint and the smoothness of gin, creating a drink that’s as rejuvenating as the first spring breeze. It’s a perfect toast to the thawing frost and the emerging greenery.


  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Dry Vermouth
  • 1/4 oz Elderflower Liqueur
  • Fresh cucumber slices (about 3-4 thin slices)
  • Fresh mint leaves (a small handful)
  • Ice cubes
  • A cucumber ribbon or mint sprig for garnish


  1. In a mixing glass, muddle the cucumber slices and mint leaves gently to release their flavors.
  2. Add the gin, dry vermouth, and elderflower liqueur to the glass.
  3. Fill the glass with ice and stir well until the mixture is chilled.
  4. Double strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass to remove the bits of cucumber and mint.
  5. Garnish with a cucumber ribbon or a sprig of mint for an elegant and refreshing finish.

The Spring Thaw Martini is not just a cocktail; it’s a celebration of the seasons’ shift, embodying the freshness and vitality of spring. Cheers to new beginnings and the promise of warmer days ahead!
