Sour Patch Watermelon Cucumber Cooler

I was walking through the greenhouse today and couldn’t believe how gorgeous the cucumbers are! I was instantly inspired to create this Sour Patch Watermelon Cucumber Cooler recipe with some Halloween candy. This cooler is the perfect fall/spring drink for your inner child, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 ½ cups watermelon, seeds removed, cut into chunks
  • ½ large Copiana cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
  • 3 ounces vodka
  • Garnishes:  Sour Patch Watermelon and cucumber slices

 

Instructions:

  • Place a fine-mesh sieve over a large bowl or pitcher.
  • In a blender, puree the watermelon and cucumber chunks.
  • Pour mixture through the sieve into the bowl. Use the back of a big spoon or rubber spatula to squeeze all the juice into the bowl.
  • In a small bowl, stir together lime juice and honey.
  • Pour the lime juice and honey mixture into the watermelon and cucumber juice, along with vodka. Adjust sweetness with more honey if desired.
  • To serve, fill two glasses with ice and top each with cocktail. Garnish with Sour Patch Watermelon and cucumber.
