How to Make Cucumber Vodka
Making your own flavored vodka is easy—really. And it’s not just easy for an experienced bartender or frequent DIYer; it’s easy for anyone and everyone. Cucumber flavored vodka is no different. Essentially, if you can peel and slice a cucumber, you can make this vodka. And you definitely should make this vodka because it’s surprisingly versatile. While it’s great sipped on its own over ice (it’s like spa water with a kick), it’s also delicious mixed with soda water for a low-cal cocktail with lots of flavor, stirred into a Martini, or even mixed in a Moscow Mule or Bloody Mary. Plus, you can make cucumber flavored vodka with any vodka. “Even bottom shelf vodka?” you may ask. Especially bottom shelf vodka. You can take a $7 bottle of vodka and turn it into something that tastes like it costs four times as much. All you need to do is infuse it.
