Cucumber Mojito Recipe Ingredients
To get the party going, you’ll first need all the necessary ingredients for this delightful cocktail. Keep in mind that this recipe makes one drink, so if you’re making this for a crowd make sure to adjust the ingredients as needed.
For this recipe you’ll need:
4 cucumber slices
3 wedges of lime
10 mint leaves
1 ½ tablespoons of sugar
1 cup of ice
1 ½ ounces of cucumber vodka*
4-6 ounces of club soda
*Mojitos are typically made with rum, but it’s always good to mix it up a bit! Feel free to go the classic route with some white rum or add a fun twist to this classic cocktail like we did by using cucumber-flavored vodka instead.
First things first. To start this cucumber mojito you’ll need to cut some cucumber and lime into slices and combine them with fresh mint leaves and sugar into a glass.
Muddle your cucumber mojito ingredients together in order to release all the juices and oils; this will draw out the flavors, making them even more delicious when combined with our alcohol base. (Pro tip: If you don’t have a muddler on hand, you can use the handle of a spatula or a rolling pin and it will do just the trick!) Give it a few twists until the ingredients are combined.
From there it’s almost too easy! Simply top with ice and then add in your cucumber-flavored vodka and club soda. If you want to get really crafty you can infuse your own vodka with cucumber, but it is just as easy to find at your local liquor store. To make your cocktail look extra pretty, garnish with an extra cucumber slice and a lime wedge!
