In my experience, actually, cucumber doesn't take nearly that long. I started doing a cucumber infusion after having the cucumber gimlet at Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco, and it's pretty brilliant. They put the recipe on their blog:

Cucumber “Gimlet”
1 3⁄4 oz. Cucumber-infused vodka
3⁄4 oz. Lime Juice
1⁄4 oz. Elderflower syrup
1 dash Orange bitters
Float of Champagne
Shake everything but the champagne with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Add float of Champagne. Garnish: Three cucumber slices.

*Cucumber Vodka
1 Cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
Zest of 1 lemon or orange
1 750-ml. bottle unflavored vodka
Combine the cucumber, zest and vodka in sterile glass jar; let stand for 48 hours before serving.

Really subtle, really clean, basically superior to straight vodka in every way...
