In the heat of summer, is there anything more refreshing than cucumber water? Nope. Add some booze to the mix and you have the perfect drink for a summer picnic. Well, not quite. Seattle designer and blogger Jean Lee has created a Cucumber Lemon Vodka Drink that might be the best-looking summer drink we've ever seen. Design*Sponge has the recipe.
Ingredients (makes one serving of an 8oz drink)
1–2 pieces of thinly sliced lemons
4–6 pieces of thinly sliced cucumbers
1 teaspoon of agave or honey
2 oz vodka
4 oz sparkling water
3–4 cubes of ice
mint for garnish
a knife and cutting boards to slice the cucumber and lemons
a strong determination to enjoy a picnic, rain or shine!
Add vodka and honey to a mason jar. Give a nice stir. Add lemon and cucumber, and top off with ice. Fill the remainder of the glass with sparkling water, give another stir and garnish with a sprig of mint. Enjoy!
