Bourbon cucumber cocktail is an easy-to-make drink that’s as refreshing as it is delicious. I’m going to admit it – I am a whiskey and bourbon kind of girl. Yep. That is my spirit of choice. For warmer weather, though, I like something a little lighter and more refreshing. That’s when I reach for a refreshing Bourbon Cucumber cocktail. It’s a classic summer drink that’s perfect for sipping, whether you’re enjoying some downtime after a long day or entertaining in the back yard on game day.
Don’t get me wrong, a nice glass of wine or a vodka cocktail is good, too. But, for me, bourbon is where it’s at. It has a nice warmth and a smooth finish, and it isn’t nearly as biting as vodka and similar spirits can be. It’s the perfect spirit for shots with the girls or a nice cocktail on the deck while the barbecue is going on.
This Bourbon Cucumber cocktail is a refreshing change of pace. It’s a classic drink, also known as a whiskey cucumber cocktail, that somehow feels so uniquely modern. The cooling, refreshing cucumber pairs perfectly with the slightly mellower bite of the bourbon, making a combination that has a coolness and heat that wakes up your mouth. It’s the perfect cocktail for kicking off summer. Not only that, this Bourbon Cucumber is perfect for serving all summer long. It pairs nicely with BBQ and grilled foods.
We’re using Bulleit bourbon for this particular recipe, but you can use whatever your preference is. Bulleit is a Kentucky whiskey that has a nice spicy flavor and a smooth finish. It pairs really nicely with the cool cucumber and the honey in this drink recipe. The bold flavor shines but isn’t overpowering. When you combine all of those, you get a flavor that has a bit of spice, a nice cooling undertone, and a smooth finish. It just feels like summer.
The best part of this summer bourbon cocktail might be how easy it is to make. You need practically no bar-tending skills, just the ability to mash and stir. We can all do that, right?? Plus, it doesn’t require any special or exotic ingredients. Most likely, you have all of these ingredients in your kitchen already. It’s the easiest cocktail you’ll ever make, and it requires no fancy moves – unless you feel like Cocktailing it for the guests. Just don’t drop anything!
