Cucumber Vodka Lemonade - FAVORITE summer cocktail recipe. Made with cucumber vodka, lemonade, fresh cucumber, and a dash of mint. SO refreshing!

THIS. This is summer. It’s hot. 95 degrees hot. It’s fireworks for half the month of July, and maybe some of June too. It’s going to the county fair for a pineapple whip because, why not? It’s watering the flowers 3 times a day. It’s sticky, salty skin and the smell of sweet corn on the grill. It’s a tall glass of lemonade – preferably cucumber vodka lemonade. On repeat.

You see where I’m going with this? An adult beverage with health benefits, obviously. Cucumber and lemon? These are good things. I mean, hello – it’s a green drink!

It’s no secret that Prairie Organic is our favorite brand of spirits. These fine folks are pioneers in their realm – they are one of first USDA Certified Organic spirit brands and they’re holding steady as the #1 brand in the category. That’s what happens when you put care and craftsmanship into every single bottle. When you know the source of every ear of corn and you work with farmers who are committed to providing the highest quality ingredients.

This is the kind of vodka that MAKES a cocktail. It’s award-winning for obvious reasons – nothing else compares to the distinct, smooth magic that they’ve achieved. You taste the subtle cucumber just enough and it compliments the refreshing lemon + mint combo for a total home run.

This cocktail was concocted with summer bonfires in mind. For nights when the heat backs off and leaves you in that perfect cool-warm temperature that only exists a few nights a year. But to be honest, we haven’t had any of those this year and I am SO not complaining. I speak from experience when I say that this cocktail is plenty delicious on a smoldering Midwest evening.

I’m gonna sip this cucumber vodka lemonade on hot summer nights and I’m gonna sip this cucumber vodka lemonade on those nights that melt into fall. A little crisp, a bit muggy, and in need of refreshment.

  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 1 cocktail
  • Category: Drink

Ingredients

Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • 3-4 oz. lemonade
  • 1 oz. cucumber juice *see notes*
  • 1 1/2 oz Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka
  • mint for garnish
  • lemon for garnish

Lemonade

  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice

Instructions

Lemonade

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally until all of the sugar has been dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. In a large jar or pitcher, add syrup, lemon juice, and water and stir to combine.

Cocktail 

  1. In a 16 oz. mason jar, add ice. Pour in vodka, cucumber juice, and lemonade.
  2. Garnish with fresh mint, lemon, cucumber, etc. and enjoy!

Notes

* If you don’t have a juicer: chop off the ends of the cucumber and slice the cucumber in half. Add to a blender with a splash of water and blend into a puree. Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl or glass and pour in the puree. You should get enough juice for the recipe!

    Cucumber vodka is so refreshing! I’ve only ever had it with tonic…I love that you did lemonade and fresh cucumber. What a great way to up the freshness and brightness. I’m going to have to try this one for sure

    Oooh the cucumber juice is a great addition to lemonade! I love the spike of vodka too for a more grownup depth. This sounds so refreshing and I love the bright color!

    I love the Cucumber Mint lemonade at Cheesecake factory. I imagine this tastes just as good with vodka. That is a win!

      Yes – you have to try it! It’s such a good addition to so many cocktails.

  • Now THIS is MY kind of green drink!! I love cucumber in cocktails! I tend to pair cucumber with gin, but I bet it’s awesome with vodka. This looks super refreshing and SO perfect for this heat wave we’ve been having out here in New York!

      Right?! Me too! Green drinks don’t always have to be smoothies lol. I hope you enjoy!

      Enjoy!

  • I’ve been super into cucumber drinks lately. I’ve always loved lemonade vodka drinks. But why have I never combined the two?! Such a good idea! I’m 100% making this.
