Cucumber Basil Vodka Limeade

 

This Cucumber Basil Vodka Limeade is the perfect summer cocktail.  It’s so refreshing and full of flavor!

 

 

Trips and Tips for the best cocktail:

 

  1. Don’t skip out on straining your juice.  The juice needs to be strained through a fine mesh bag for the best, smoothest texture.
  2. Use a high-quality vodka for the best possible taste.
  3. Shake your juice before making the cocktail to make sure that all of the ingredients are evenly combined.

 

Swaps and Substitutions:

 

One reason I love this recipe is because it is so customizable.  Here are some ways that you can make it your own…

 

  • The vodka can be swapped for gin or tequila.
  • If you don’t drink alcohol, you can leave it out and make this recipe into a mocktail.  Just add some extra sparkling water.
  • The limes can be swapped for lemons.
  • Mint works well in the place of basil.
