10 Best Cucumber Vodka Cocktail Recipes
Let’s kick things off with a super quick five-minute cocktail.
Calling for just a handful of ingredients, this is the only summer drink you’ll need this year.
It starts with a quick cantaloupe puree, to which you’ll add cucumber vodka and a splash of sparkling water.
You’ll love the delicate orange hue of this drink. Plus, if the melon is ripe, it has a pleasantly sweet, mild flavor.
Quench your thirst with a refreshing twist on a classic cocktail!
The OG recipe calls for gin, lime juice, and simple syrup. So it’s pretty boozy, nicely zesty, and quite herbaceous, depending on the gin.
So if you like that blend, you’ll love this cucumber-forward version.
Instead of botanical gin, this recipe is much milder, with the crisp cucumber vodka taking center stage.
To boost the herbal notes, try muddling some basil leaves in the glass.
This one might split the crowd, but if you’re a cilantro lover, I know you’ll go gaga for this drink.
Between the cucumber vodka and finely chopped cilantro, yes, it’s pretty grassy and herbaceous.
But there’s also freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice, as well as honey in the mix, making it wonderfully sweet and tart.
Try it once, and it might just convert you!
Cucumber vodka is mellow and refreshing. In contrast, St. Germain is lightly sweet and wonderfully floral.
Together, they’re a match made in cocktail heaven.
You’ll add lime juice for a bit of zest and simple syrup to round out the flavors. Meanwhile, club soda brings the bubbles.
That said, you could skip those three and just use lemon-lime soda if you prefer. It’ll be just as sweet and citrussy with plenty of bubbles!
I’m not sure who these infamous Collins men are, but Tom and Phil both have a knack for delicious drinks.
Tom calls for gin with lemon juice, sugar, and club soda. But Phil is all about the vodka, cucumber, and lime.
This easy drink only takes a couple of minutes if you have cucumber vodka on hand.
Just shake cucumber vodka with ice, lime juice, simple syrup, chartreuse, and bitters. Then, serve in a tall glass with thin cucumber slices.
If you don’t have cucumber vodka, just muddle cucumber slices and add vodka. Allow it to infuse for about 10 minutes or so, and you’re good to go.
Happy hour just got a whole lot prettier! If you’ve never had a watermelon martini, you have to try this easy recipe!
Start by blending fresh watermelon with agave nectar and water. Then, shake that with ice and cucumber vodka until chilled.
Pour it into a chilled martini glass and garnish with fresh melon and cucumber. Sip responsibly, and enjoy!
Is it just me, or is the OG martini a little overpowering? I prefer drinks sweet, and the typical martini is anything but!
But this cucumber, honey, and lemon version is bright, fresh, and just the right balance of sweet and tart.
You only need five ingredients, which kick off with ice-cold cucumber vodka.
Muddle in some cucumbers for even more flavor, then add lemon juice and honey.
For a sophisticated serving, place an ice ball in your martini glass. It’s such a fun and gorgeous finish.
If you think cucumber vodka is too mild for your tastes, try it with sweet, juicy strawberries!
You’ll muddle fresh strawberries with basil and lemon juice before topping it with chilled cucumber vodka and simple syrup.
Since you’ll use real fruit, be sure it’s nice and ripe. Also, you don’t want frozen berries in here as the flavor is dulled.
The basil is optional, so if you want it sweet, just leave it out.
Mojitos are the epitome of summer. And while they usually feature rum, I think you’ll love this cucumber vodka recipe.
Muddle the mint, lime, cucumber slices, and sugar in a glass. Then add ice, vodka, and club soda, and stir gently.
Garnish with cucumber and lime slices, and enjoy!
I must admit: the main reason I love Moscow Mules is the copper mugs.
But luckily, this vodka, lime, and ginger beer classic tastes just as good in a glass.
It’s such a simple recipe, and this version has just one simple tweak – cucumber vodka instead of regular vodka.
Serve it over ice with plenty of fresh lime and cucumber slices, and you’re all set.
