My love of cucumber vodka is no secret. Heck, I practically planned a whole party around it last summer just to coax people into coming up with new uses for it.
This one is inspired by a Pimms Cup, which is one of my husband's summertime favorites. This cucumber-lemon cooler is light, super mild, not too sweet, and not too sour.
1 part Cucumber-Infused Vodka
1 part Club Soda
1 part Sparkling Lemon Soda
Stir together ingredients over ice. Garnish with a sugar rim and slices of lemon and cucumber.
Because this drink is so mild and drinkable, it's perfect for mixing up a whole pitcher, which I did just a few weekends ago for a crafternoon with some lady friends.
A few ingredient notes:
Cucumber-Infused Vodka: Infusing vodka with cucumber is super easy. A liter of vodka requires about 2 cucumbers. Peel, de-seed, and chop the cucumbers. Allow to infuse in the vodka for about 5 days.
Sparkling Lemon Soda: Italian lemon soda will work just fine. Although, I used a delightful sparkling meyer lemon soda that I found at World Market that has a nice little sour kick to it.
