Nothing says summer better than soaking up the sun with a cool drink in hand. This Summer Breeze Cocktail is my current favorite because it has the most refreshing ingredients and is absolutely delicious. Trust me, one pitcher of it won’t be enough!
This drink pairs perfectly with any light summer meal. Its fresh ingredients complement just about any flavor. Serve it with a decadent charcuterie board or even a simple Quiche Lorraine.
Preparing to Make Your Cocktail
The best part about this cocktail is that it is super easy to make. It’s so simple that after you’ve gathered your ingredients, you’re already halfway there!
All you need is some cucumbers, limes, cilantro, mint, vodka, and prosecco or sparkling wine. Whichever you choose to use is totally up to you – this is where you can play with the cocktail based on your preferences! Use a Crémant sparkling wine to channel your inner French femme.
Here’s how you can make this delicious drink right at home!
Pitchers and Drinking Glasses
- 3-4 cucumbers peeled and chopped (about 3 cups)
- 1 cup mint leaves
- ½ cup cilantro
- ½ cup agave nectar
- 4 limes juiced
- Couple of dashes of salt
- 1 cup vodka (use Tito’s for gluten-free version)
- 2 cups chilled prosecco champagne or seltzer
- Garnish: additional slices of lime and cucumber
Fill your blender with all ingredients except the prosecco, champagne, or seltzer and garnishes. Blend well.
Remove from blender and strain into large jar or bowl. Toss the pulp. Chill juice until ready to serve.
Just prior to serving, add slices of limes and cucumbers, ice, and chilled juice to a large pitcher. Pour in champagne or seltzer water and serve in glasses that are garnished with a slice of lime and cucumber.
