Cucumber Cooler

So I hope you guys have been enjoying this series so far! This is my 4th edition of #SipsWithSami and I wanted to make something light and refreshing: Cucumber Cooler. This is one of the easier drinks to make – super simple, yet delicious and fresh. Since I made a gin based drink last week, I opted for vodka this week but of course this is totally customizable and it would taste just as good with gin, or whatever you prefer!

Total Time: 10-15 minutes

Serves: 2


  • 3 oz of Vodka (+ or – depending on how strong you like your drinks)
  • 10-12 cucumber slices (~ half a cucumber)
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • Tonic water to top off
  • Mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp of simple syrup


  • Add 10-12 cucumber slices, mint (4-6 leaves), 1 lime squeezed, Vodka, 1 tbsp of simple syrup in a shaker and muddle
  • Shake vigorously
  • Pour mixture over glass filled with ice
  • Top with tonic water
  • Garnish with cucumber slices and mint
  • ENJOY!





XO, Sami

    Now this is a total favorite of mine as I love cucumber in everything and where you made a cooler using it, I usually use it to make a mocktail mojito and it works surprisingly well. Love it as an ingredient!

    I’m usually not the biggest fan of cucumber by itself, but I will drink the heck out of a cocktail that’s infused or garnished with it. It looks and sounds like such a refreshing beverage for the summer heat. I look forward to trying this one for sure. Keep the #SipsWithSami recipes coming!

    to be honest I’m not a big fan of cucumber drinks. I love to eat them but this post of yours makes me think twice as it looks so refreshing. I might even try them myself.

    Thanks for the awesome recipe!

    I’m totally loving your cocktail recipes! Keep ’em coming 😉 This looks really refreshing. I’m a gin girl so I’ll probably try it out with that. xx

    This drink looks too pretty to drink which I do not do liquor but could do it without. I would love a cucumber cooler by itself.

    Cocktails with cucumbers are the most refreshing ones! My favourite cocktail is Gin Tonic with slice of cucumber (classic one, I know), but it is so interesting to try something new! Thank you for the recipe.
