Cool as a cucumber - there's just something about that flavor that is so refreshing. This cocktail pairs lime and basil flavors as well to create a combo that is just perfect for hot summer days. You can leave the vodka out if you want a mocktail, too - it will be just as delicious.
The flavors will infuse as you drink the cocktail. For even more flavor, you can freeze slices of cucumber and use them in place of ice cubes - brilliant, right?
