The Key to a Flavorful Cucumber Cocktail
If you are looking for a cucumber vodka cocktail recipe that will serve all of your friends— you’ve come to the right place! This yummy large-batch cucumber vodka cocktail is so easy to make and only requires a few fresh ingredients.
The key to this drink is not only using a cucumber-flavored vodka, but also letting the vodka soak in fresh fruit for at least 30 minutes before mixing up the rest of the drink. This will really help infuse the vodka and make it oh-so-flavorful.
A Crowd Pleaser
The reason why we are sharing a large batch vodka cocktail recipe because let’s be honest, usually, you’re not making just 1 drink, you’re making drinks for a crowd! What you’ll need for this amazing Cucumber Melon Ginger Punch is:
- 750 ml. vodka (we recommend the Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka flavor)
- honeydew melon
- fresh mint
- ginger beer
- club soda
The flavors are on point and you’ll definitely be going back for seconds! PS: I recently bought this adorable mason jar drink dispenser off Amazon and I’ve already used it multiple times. It’s perfect for parties, picnics, and large batch drinks!
How can I make this into a smaller batch? Here is a quick recipe to make just one serving of this amazing cucumber vodka cocktail: 1.5 oz. cucumber vodka, 1.5 oz. ginger beer, 1.5 oz. club soda, 2 slices cucumber, 2 honeydew balls, fresh mint leaf.
How long does this cucumber vodka cocktail last? Since this large batch cocktail contains both ginger beer and club soda (bubbly drinks!) we recommend drinking immediately or it will fall flat. It should last you up to 8 hours, though, so don’t worry!
How far ahead can I make this drink? To get the most flavor out of this cucumber vodka cocktail, we recommend letting the vodka seep for around 2 hours before adding the rest of the ingredients. Make sure to add the ginger beer and club soda right before serving so it doesn’t go flat.
Can I make this into a frozen drink? To turn this into a frozen drink, freeze your honeydew balls. Then, place honeydew balls, vodka, ginger beer, and club soda into a highspeed blender. Blend on high until your slushie has been made. Then, serve with fresh cucumber and a mint leaf.
How do I make this virgin? To turn this into a virgin drink, remove the vodka and then double the ginger beer and club soda.
