Ever since my vacation in the Florida Keys earlier this year, I have been on a cucumber vodka kick. I had some great cucumber cocktails while on Duval Street, one at the 2¢ Restaurant & Gastro Pub (they have maple-glazed bacon as happy hour bar nibbles – drool) and another at Point5 Lounge, part of nine one five. They were so good I had to try my hand at making them at home.

This recipe was first posted in our local grocer’s circular, and it looked like a good one to try, but there were just a few minor changes I had to make. I added more lime juice, changed out the sugar for agave, and used lime flavored Perrier instead of soda water. It was fabulous if I do say so myself!
