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!


  • 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


  1. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a large bowl or pitcher.
  2. In a blender, puree the watermelon and cucumber chunks.
  3. 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.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together lime juice and honey.
  5. Pour the lime juice and honey mixture into the watermelon and cucumber juice, along with vodka. Adjust sweetness with more honey if desired.
  6. To serve, fill two glasses with ice and top each with cocktail. Garnish with Sour Patch Watermelon and cucumber.
