Cucumber Lime Cocktail is our new favorite drink! It is tasty, light, and refreshing. This recipe calls for lime cordial, which is a fancy description for lime simple syrup. The lime cordial gives the drink a fresh, zesty lime taste with an amazing floral aroma. This cocktail is perfect to sip poolside, at the beach, or anywhere you would like a drink in your hand. We love this cocktail, but beware as it is very easy to drink!

  • 2-3 cucumber slices
  • 1 1/2 ounce of vodka

    • 2 Limes 
    • 61 grams of super fine sugar

Make Cucumber Lime Cocktail

  1. Muddle cucumber slices in a mixing glass. 
  2. Add the vodka, fresh lime juice, lime cordial, St. Germain and ice. Shake for 15-20 seconds. (You can strain drink into martini glass but we prefer to keep the zest and pulp to add to the flavor and visual presentation.)
