Frozen Cucumber Blueberry Lemonade (with or without booze)

Happy second week of SPRING, y’all! Treat yourself to some porch-sitting and a boozy cucumber blueberry lemonade!

This recipe calls for cucumber vodka, and I used the bottle that Prairie Spirits sent me. You can see the first recipe that I made with my cucumber vodka here. Don’t worry if you can’t find cucumber vodka at the store! I have a recipe to make your own, and there’s even a booze-free option if you want the cucumber-blueberry goodness without the alcohol.

When I first started working on this recipe, I was going to make the cucumber vodka optional, but after adjusting and tasting, I just can’t do it. Cucumber and blueberry might sound like a weird combination, but it’s almost shockingly refreshing. I highly recommend hunting down or making cucumber vodka for your frozen blueberry lemonade adventures. So good!

If you can’t find cucumber vodka (or want to make a non-boozy version), here’s how to make your own:

Homemade Cucumber Vodka (or water)

Method

  1. Combine the cucumber and vodka or water in a glass jar with a lid, and stash it in the fridge overnight.

  1. It doesn’t look like we’ll be sitting on the porch anytime soon, but we can sip our drinks in front of the fire until the time is right.

  3. I LOVE anything with a blueberry and lemon combination, and though I’ve never tried cucumber with it, I can totally see how it would work. Thanks for the suggestion! This drink sounds amazing.
