Cucumber vodka cocktails can make for refreshing drinks while also giving you unique tastes. There are several kinds of cocktails that you can make for different occasions or simply to try out a little bit of everything.
Let’s take a look at some cucumber vodka cocktail ideas that you can go through and pick from.
Mint and Lemonade Cucumber Vodka
This cocktail can be a cool and fresh drink that is also easy to make. For this, you need some cucumber vodka, homemade or store-bought lemonade or lemon syrup, mint syrup or leaves and ice.
You can first combine the cucumber vodka with the lemonade and ice in a shaker or mixer. If you have mint syrup, then make sure you add that at this stage too. Once you blend it well, you can pour it out into the glasses.
Garnish the glasses with cucumber or lemon slices as well as some mint sprigs.
A Bloody Mary is a well-known drink that offers spicy and unique flavors since it tends to make use of sauces as well as pepper. Garnishes such as olives, celery salt, celery and mint are also used.
To make a Bloody Mary, you can also use cucumber vodka. Shake it well with salt, some lemon juice, tomato juice and lime, depending on your requirements and tastes.
Add some ice cubes as well to chill the drink. You can then pour it out and add the necessary garnishes.
Cosmo with Cranberry
A cranberry cosmo (or cosmopolitan) can give a fruity cocktail that you can then combine with the freshness and distinct taste of the cucumber vodka.
To make this cocktail, take some cucumber vodka and combine it with lime juice and cranberry juice, sugary syrups (for the sweetness) and some ice. You can either use readymade cranberry juice or squeeze some out on your own.
After shaking it well together, you can pour the cocktail out into the glasses. Garnish with a lemon or cucumber slice along with a couple of whole cranberries to enhance the flavor even more.
Ginger Beer Cucumber Vodka
This is another simple but refreshing recipe. Usually, a Moscow Mule is what this drink can be called, the only difference being that this one uses cucumber-flavored vodka.
Mix the cucumber vodka well with ginger beer and a bit of lime juice for added flavor. You can also add some ice here to make the cocktail much cooler.
It is also possible to make the cucumber vodka on your own by dropping some cucumber slices into the vodka and letting it sit for a while to soak up the flavor.
Once the cocktail is ready and you have poured it out, you can use thin cucumber slices for the garnish. Jalapenos can also make for good garnish in this cocktail.
Grapefruit Cucumber Vodka
Grapefruit cucumber vodka can provide a distinct and fruity flavor to balance out the taste of cucumber. The recipe is a simple process that you can tweak according to your requirements and tastes.
To make this cocktail, you will need to mix the cucumber vodka (store-bought flavor or infused at home) with grapefruit juice that you can either squeeze out on your own or buy from the store.
Some salt can also add to the overall flavor of this drink. After you pour the drink out, you can garnish with cucumber or grapefruit slices.
Watermelon Cucumber Vodka
To make this cocktail, you will need to slice up the watermelon well while getting rid of the seeds. You can also make use of watermelon juice, but fresh watermelon will give a more well-defined taste.
You should also use lime juice while mixing the drink. Some sugar syrup can add some sweetness as well. You can make this syrup on your own by boiling water and sugar together and letting it cool down.
Mix it all in together until everything is blended well. Once you are happy with the consistency, you can pour the drink out into glasses or jars and decorate them with watermelon or lime slices.
White Wine and Cucumber Vodka
White wine and cucumber vodka can work pretty well together in terms of their flavors. For this, use one part of the cucumber vodka and two parts of white wine of your choice (a sparkling one can work better).
Add a bit of lemon juice to the mix along with some sugar syrup and ice to enhance the flavor. Shake everything together for a while.
For the glass, you can lay out a cucumber strip in a roll for garnish. Pour the prepared cocktail and some extra ice if required.
