Dishing Up the Dirt

Cucumber-Lime Vodka Coolers

Is it heating up where you live? If so, these super delicious farm fresh drinks will surely cool you down.

These cocktails are a great way to use up excess cucumbers that may be growing in your garden or flooding the farmers market stands in your neighborhood. They are a cinch to whip up and are definitely going to become our go-to summer beverage.

I hope you all enjoy these coolers as much as we do. Sit back, relax and clink glasses with someone you love. Cheers

    Wow! While completing my morning jog, I was thinking about food. (Yes, I do that.) I thought, “I wonder if Andrea has any cucumber recipes on her site? I love cucumbers on a hot day.” Low and behold, you have surpassed my expectations…a cucumber recipe waiting for me and it contains vodka! Let’s see…what should I think about tomorrow? “I wonder if Andrea has any rum recipes on her site?”

    1. Andrea says:

      haha! a rum recipe needs to happen next!! I hope you enjoy these cocktails

  3. Oh, to have such problems as a surplus of cucumbers! I love the lime-mint combination as well. Thanks for sharing! It’s hotter than heck here in Idaho…looking foward to making these soon.

    A while back, my friend made me a cucumber cocktail using freshly juiced cucumbers. This whole time I thought I would need a juicer to enjoy a tasty cucumber beverage and I’m so happy to discover I can just throw some cucumber in a blender. This is glorious news – I’ll be making this drink round the clock now!

      no need for a juicer for this puppy! Enjoy!

  7. These are THE most gorgeous cocktails! I was wondering what was inside after you instagrammed that picture the other day 🙂 I think it’s safe to say you and Taylor deserve to enjoy a few of these after a tough day on the farm!

    1. Andrea says:

      Thanks girl! I hope it’s cooler where you are. If not whip these up to cool down! Cheers.
