This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wheatley Vodka – Craft Vodka Cocktails. All opinions are 100% mine.

When it comes to cocktails, I’m always on the hunt for something light, fresh and easy. This Cucumber Mint Cocktail is exactly that! Made with fresh cucumbers and mint, you’ll feel like you’re sipping on boozy spa water!

Instead of using simple syrup or adding a sweetener to the cocktail, I added lemonade. This gives the cocktail a hint of sweetness and I love the balance of the fresh lemon taste with the cucumber and mint.

I used Wheatley Vodka – Award-Winning Craft Vodka as the perfect base for this cocktail. It’s crafted in small batches, ten-times-distilled, triple filtered and bottled at 82 proof.

With a super smooth clean taste and hints of soft vanilla, this vodka is so smooth, it pairs perfectly with the light, fresh flavors in this cocktail recipe!
