I’m so excited about this post for this delicious Cucumber Moscow Mule.
It’s delicious. Think super summery and refreshing thoughts for these terribly hot summer days.
No better way to ring in the summer than with refreshing drinks! Moscow Mules are one of my favorite drinks just because of how refreshing they are. There’s something about the combination of lime and ginger beer that just gets me.
Add in some cucumber for that summery spin and I think I’ve found my new favorite drink. It’s got this great green taste from both the cucumber and lime juice. I definitely recommend using fresh lime just for that extra zip.
You can either muddle in fresh cucumber or use cucumber vodka to get that refreshing spa-water taste. I would recommend using a sieve to make sure you don’t get too many seeds if you use fresh cucumber! I opted for the lazy route and went for cucumber vodka… What can I say. It’s hot out and the fewer steps to me getting a drink the better!
