Cucumber Cooler

A Refreshing Cocktail for the Hot Summer Days

More often than not, people get comfortable with their “go-to” drinks. They grab that cold beer because it’s easy or mix up that vodka tonic once again. I’m a culprit! (That cold Bud Light does wonders for me). So, if you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for something new & delicious to try and step out of your comfort zone. During these hot summer months, what better is there than finding that refreshing cocktail to enjoy? One of our new Port St. Lucie residents and experienced Catering Director, Meghan Stricker, shared with me one of her favorite go-to cocktail recipes; Cucumber Cooler.  You can try it as a mocktail if you prefer, simply just omit the vodka for a tasty cucumber lemonade.  This drink pairs well with grilled flatbreads or a lighter option like hummus dip!

Try it at home and tag us in your photos. Be sure to let us know what you think… Cheers! @portstluciecitylifestyle
