Cool as a Cucumber



Lately everything I've been ordering when out at happy hour has included cucumber of some sort. I'm not a huge fan of cucumber on its own, but add it into a drink and I'm game! This drink was really simple to throw together and tastes delicious as well. Perk; the mocktail version is just as good :)

What you'll need:
(1) Cucumber
(2) Lemon
(3) Fresh Mint
(4) Club soda
(5) Vodka
(6) Sugar

Recipe:
(1) Cut your cucumber in half. Using one part peel and dice; for the other cut into rounds
(2) Place your diced cucumber and sugar into your shaker and muddle 
(3) Once muddled add a handful of mint leaves and continue to muddle until you smell the mint
(4) Add ice, 1 part fresh squeezed lemon juice, 2 parts vodka
(5) Shake vigorously 
(6) Strain into glass and top with club soda
(7) Garnish with your cucumber slices, mint leaves, and lemon wedges

  1. This looks really yummy! And your photos are so nice and bright. I'm allergic to cucumbers though...I could probably do without it right??

    1. Thank you! Yeah, you definitely could!! I would just add a little more lemon and mint to make it more of a lemonade/mint drink :)

    2. Which would be PERFECT because I add lemon to everything just because. I love zest. Thanks!
