Prepare cucumber by cutting into 2 inch rounds.
Scoop out the seeds and flesh in the center of the cucumber using a melon baller or spoon.
Be careful not to go all the way through the cup. (Place scooped cucumber into a bowl).
Carve out enough of the cucumber to leave a ½ inch (8 mm) border, along sides and bottom. You should have 12 mini cups.
Place all of the remaining ingredients in a food processor including the reserved cucumber.
Puree until smooth.
Adjust seasoning to taste.
Add vodka and strain through a colander.
Chill for 1 hour and up to overnight to develop flavor.
Pour puree into cucumber cups and serve immediately.
