This is hands down one of my favorite drinks in the Summer. A restaurant in Maine used to make something similar that they called a “Taste of Summer” which used Gin, and since then it is what my friends and I call this type of drink. I prefer Vodka over Gin but you can use whichever you please.
It is basically just a Vodka and Tonic, or Gin and Tonic, with lime and a muddled cucumber. I think the restaurant also added a simple syrup but I like it without. I absolutely love the taste of cucumber in this drink and you can add more of a cucumber flavor by using Cucumber Vodka.
Vodka (or Gin)
Muddle a cucumber in the bottom of a glass. You can crush the cucumber before putting in the glass, or just use a spoon to mash it while in the glass. You just want to release the cucumber flavor.
Add ice, then equal parts Vodka and Tonic Water and a squeeze of lime. Stir.
Use a lime wedge and a cumber slice for garnish. Enjoy!
