Herbed Cucumber Prosecco Cocktail

This cocktail is unexpected in about 3 different ways (I don’t really know how many ways, but I’m thinking that’s about right).  It’s green, which you don’t see all that often, it’s herby, it’s sparkly, it’s ridiculously aromatic.  Ok, that’s 4.

This cocktail brings this phrase to mind: Detox/Retox. Basically if you’re in the mood for a alcoholic drink, but you’re still trying to stay on the healthy side, this is a prime candidate for that kind of justification sipping.

Cucumber in Cocktails

The cool, simple flavor of cucumber is lovely in drinks. You will be using a cucumber in this drink in 2 ways (that I’m sure of).  Half of the cucumber is peeled, seeded, roughly chopped and pureed with some herbs and honey to make the refreshing puree that anchors this cocktail.  The other half will be sliced as used for garnish, along with additional sprigs of the featured fresh herbs, basil and mint.

How to Make Vodka Prosecco Cocktail

Cut the cucumber in half.  Slice one half into circles and set aside in the refrigerator.  Peel the other half, slice in half lengthwise, scrape out the seeds, and cut into chunks.  Place the chunks of cucumber, mint, basil, and honey in a food processor or blender, add the vodka and blend until as smooth as possible; let the motor run for at least 30 seconds.  Refrigerate the puree for at least 1 hour, until chilled.

Pour in the chilled puree into a pitcher.

Then pour in the prosecco.
