Cucumber Lime Crush Cocktail

Market’s been filled up with tons of cucumbers these past few weeks. Sometimes it’s hard to see past a cucumber as just another good addition to salad, but when the weather is warm, a nice cucumber drink always hits the spot.

Check out this Cucumber Lime Crush recipe from our friends at Ralph’s on the Park for a great summertime cocktail and substitute cucumber water for the cucumber-infused vodka for a nice refreshing alcohol-free version!

4 oz cucumber-infused vodka
4 sprigs of fresh mint leaves, muddled
splash of simple syrup
squeeze of lime

Served over ice with a lime wheel!
