Fresh Cucumber Vodka Cocktail

Fresh, crisp, and just the drink you are looking for on a hot summer day. Our Fresh Cucumber Vodka Cocktail is super refreshing and likely to quench any thirst. The tang of the lemonade mixed with the sweet bubbles of the Sprite are taken to a whole new height when you taste the hint of cucumber. The best part is how easy it comes together for a quiet front-porch sitting or for larger more boisterous gatherings!

About two years ago, my husband and I had just moved into a new neighborhood. We had a neighbor to our right that was also active-duty Air Force with two little kids of his own. We ended up forming a quick friendship with he and his wife initially because of our kids playing together and proximity, and later because they were just awesome people. One night, he came over with a drink concoction that is now our Fresh Cucumber Vodka Cocktail. We tweaked it ever so slightly and made the cucumber vodka ourselves, but it was mostly his experiment that went oh so right! (Hi Matt and Patty!)

There are some really great cucumber vodkas out there. One we gravitate toward in the event we don’t have our homemade one is Effen Cucumber Vodka. However, if you can make homemade cucumber vodka – which we highly recommend- hop over to our page that details just how to do it in three easy steps! Fresh and simple…just the way we like it.

How to make our Fresh Cucumber Vodka Cocktail

We like our drinks nice and cold, so fill up a glass with lots of ice!

If you made our homemade cucumber vodka, put a small strainer over your cup and pour 1.5 ounces of vodka in the glass. You’ll notice a few seeds you catch in the strainer which you won’t want in your drink!

Next, move the strainer out of the way and add 1/4 cup of lemonade to the glass.

Last, add 1/3 cup of sprite to the top of the mixture. Give the glass a gentle little stir.

Garnish with a cucumber slice and enjoy!

Finished glass of Cucumber Vodka Cocktail

This is one of our favorite boat drinks. It is so light and refreshing and delicious. It’s not super sweet and it has just enough fizz to keep this champagne-loving girl happy. It goes down so easily that you can forget there is alcohol in it – so beware! Hands down, this is one of the most favorite drinks in our house.
