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.
Don’t get me wrong – a nice glass of wine or a vodka cocktail are good too. But, for me, bourbon is where it’s at.
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. 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 honey in this drink recipe. The bold flavor shines, but isn’t overpowering.
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.
