What you'll need:
2-3 English cucumbers
small circle cookie cutters
small pumpkin carving knife or thin paring knife
1/4 tsp & 1/2 tsp (scoop style) measuring spoons
Step 1: Cut 'em
1. Wash your cucumbers.
2. Cut them into sections according to the diagram. *IMPORTANT: try and cut at a 90 degree angle to the edge, so the cups will sit flat on (AKA perpendicular to) the table.
You should end up with approximately two of each style cup per cuke.
Step 2: Score 'em
Step 3: Cut 'em
Step 4: Scoop 'em
Update: I've added an image of a cup cut in half so you can see the bottom and approximately how thick they need to be.
This is for reference only. DO NOT CUT YOUR CUPS IN HALF.
Tip: You can use the scooped out bits in a salad!
Once you've finished scooping out all your cups, place them on the tray that you'll be serving the drinks on. The cups will not leak, but the cucumbers will be moist on the bottom due to their high water content, so be sure to use a tray that can handle that.
Nice work! Now they're ready to fill with your favorite cold shots or cocktails!
