Refreshing Cucumber Lime Drink with Vodka or VeeV

With the summer heating up, and the big July 4th weekend quickly approaching, this is the perfect drink to cool you down! It's refreshing and delicious!! It's making me thirsty just looking at it!

Compliments of Kitty goes to Charlotte:

  • a pitcher
  • some limes - i'd say 2-3 sliced and put in the bottom of the pitcher
  • a few mint leaves
  • thick cucumber slices - or a handful of thinly sliced ones - i use about 6 or 7 slices
  • a little sugar - maybe a tablespoon or so, enough to get some juices from the above ingredients flowing
  • Vodka or VeeV - boy prefers ketel one, i prefer anything clear and in the freezer
  • soda water -optional

what you're gonna do, is put all of the ingredients except for the vodka and soda water in the pitcher, then take a wooden spoon and think of that pesky co-worker that annoys you, and start smashing.

really go for it! this is therapy people..get it all out!

once you have a good amount of juice in the bottom of the pitcher, add your vodka, stir, pour over ice with a splash of soda for a little fizz, and serve with a fresh cucumber or mint leaf and enjoy!

I encourage you to try VeeV, if you haven’t already. It is made from the Acai berry, which is stuffed with all kinds of antioxidants and yumminess. I think it adds a nice tropical touch to the drink and makes it extra refreshing.

Happy drinking!!
