My go to cocktail is a vodka lime and soda.
I love the simplicity and that they are not super sweet like some cocktails.
I also love cucumber in drinks and I had a watermelon and cucumber juice on the weekend that inspired me to try making my own cucumber drink.
I was in the mood for a vodka lime soda, so I grabbed some cucumber and threw them in my blender to make juice and got to work.
I really loved these, they are incredibly refreshing and obviously the are healthy, I mean they include cucumber so it’s like drinking salad right?
They are really clean tasting and fresh, and now I’m thinking about what other spins on Vodka lime soda I can make.
I am thinking about raspberry and lime, or passionfruit and lime or pineapple or…. I have so many idea right now maybe I need to make Maple Bacon vodka??
I am a little obsessed with maple bacon I’m sure I can make a cocktail with it. Would you try it?
Vodka, Cucumber & Lime Soda
- 1 green cucumber
- 3 limes
- Soda water
Chop up the cucumber and place into a blender and blend until smooth, strain the cucumber mixture, ensure you press down on the pulp to get all of the juice out. Add the juice from the 3 limes and mix together.
In a glass place a handful of ice, pour over 2 shots of vodka add and divide the cucumber and lime juice between the 4 glasses and top each with soda water and enjoy!
