Norah Jones, Amateur Mixologist

“I don’t like sweet drinks, so I’ve been making a really simple cocktail at home lately: I shake Grey Goose or Tito’s vodka for a while, really hard, with just cucumber and ice. The trick is to shake it for long enough that the ice waters down the vodka a little. Shaking it for a while also mashes up the cucumber; that way, you don’t have to use a muddler. I sometimes add a little fresh mint, a drop of absinthe or a squeeze of lime. The drink is strong but really refreshing.”
