Frozen cocktails and summer go hand in hand, it's simple. I don't make or have them very often so when I do I probably get a little too excited about it. I came across the recipe for this cucumber lime cooler earlier in the week and thought it sounded like a cucumber margarita (mostly because it was frozen and included lime) and tacked it on to my (imaginary) summer to do list.

Cucumber Lime Cooler
2 ounces pureed cucumber
1 ounce lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
3-5 small mint leaves
1.5 ounces vodka
Ice (about 3 to 4 cubes)

Blend together for a frozen concoction or shake and serve on the rocks.

(Makes one drink)

It came out pretty good if I do say so myself, but I think I'd like it more with gin. Is a frozen gin cocktail reasonable? Is that even a thing? I'll have to find out... 

This weekend JD and I are headed up to Rochester to visit his sister. Feel free to follow along via instagram @proseccointhepark and on bloglovin' too if you want to get crazy.

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!

  1. Oh my gosh, this sounds so perfectly refreshing! I'd never think to add pureed cucumber to a drink. Glad you're still posting summer stuff, I saw pumpkin beer for sale the other day when it was 90 degrees out!
