Thirsty Thursday: Cucumber Vodka Soda Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cucumber juice (you will need 2 to 3 seedless cucumbers)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup
  • 1 to 2 cups cold seltzer water (lime is great!)
  • crushed ice for serving
  • lime and cucumber slices for garnish

Instructions:

  1. To make the cucumber juice (if you don’t have a juicer), puree peeled seedless cucumbers (probably 2 of them) in a blender with a touch of water. Pour the puree through a fine mesh strainer into a large measuring cup.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the cucumber juice, lime juice, vodka and simply syrup. Stir well then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Before serving, pour in the cold seltzer water, starting with 1 cup. Taste and if desired, add in more simple syrup and seltzer. Pour the mixture over crushed ice and garnish with lime wedges and cucumber slices!
  3. Also, if you really want to UP the cucumber flavor, you can use cucumber vodka.
