Introducing the most refreshing drink of all time, the Cucumber Mint Vodka Cocktail! The best part is, it’s easy to whip up this delicious drink with just 5 ingredients, in only 5 minutes! Perfect for happy hour at home, sipping poolside on a warm summer day or serving at your next cocktail party!

When it comes to cocktails, I love something light, fresh and easy. This Cucumber Mint Cocktail is exactly that! Made with fresh cucumbers and mint, you’ll feel like you’re sipping on boozy spa water!

Instead of using simple syrup or adding a sweetener to the cocktail, I added lemonade. This gives the cocktail a hint of sweetness and I love the balance of the fresh lemon taste with the cucumber and mint.
