Last weekend we made some Lime & Mint Smash cocktails with Cucumber-Vodka and the general consensus was “yum.” Try them out for yourself with the recipes below!
Note: This recipe requires a tiny bit of planning. Because overnight infusion. It is sooo worth it. And also: You can do it!!
Cucumber Infused Vodka
- 1 bottle of your favorite vodka (we like our Absolut 100 ($35))
- 1 cucumber
Peel, slice and seed the cucumber and put the slices in a large airtight glass container. Pour the vodka over the cucumber and seal the container. Let it sit for at least 3 days or up to a week, then strain out the cucumbers. (Note: you can do this with a lot of other ingredients too. Experiment with different fruits and spices!)
Lime & Mint Smash with Cucumber-Vodka
- 2 oz cucumber infused vodka
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 3-4 mint leaves
- Sparkling water
Muddle the mint, lime juice and simple syrup in a shaker. Add in the vodka and ice, then shake. Pour into a glass and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
