Cucumber-Mint Sparklers

Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Yields: 1 cocktail


  • 1- inch piece of seedless cucumber finely chopped
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice that’s the juice from about half a lime
  • ounces vodka
  • 2 teaspoons mint simple syrup recipe below
  • 3 ounces Prosecco or champagne

For the Mint Simple Syrup:

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves

For Garnish:

  • 3-4 slices cucumber
  • 1 sprig fresh mint


  • First, you’ll need to make the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, water and mint leaves to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, swirling the saucepan occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool completely before using.
  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the chopped cucumber with the lime juice. Add the vodka, simple syrup and a few ice cubes, and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker becomes frosty. Strain into a glass filled with ice (I like crushed ice for this), and top with Prosecco. Garnish with the cucumber slice and mint sprig.
  • Get after it.
