Frozen Cucumber Blueberry Lemonade (with or without booze)

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:

  2. 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.
