THIS. This is summer. It's hot. 95 degrees hot. It's fireworks for half the month of July, and maybe some of June too. It's going to the county fair for a pineapple whip because, why not?

It's watering the flowers 3 times a day. It's sticky, salty skin and the smell of sweet corn on the grill. It's a tall glass of lemonade – preferably cucumber vodka lemonade. On repeat.

You see where I'm going with this? An adult beverage with health benefits, obviously. Cucumber and lemon? These are good things. I mean, hello – it's a green drink!

It's no secret that Prairie Organic is our favorite brand of spirits. These fine folks are pioneers in their realm – they are one of first USDA Certified Organic spirit brands and they're holding steady as the #1 brand in the category.

That's what happens when you put care and craftsmanship into every single bottle.

When you know the source of every ear of corn and you work with farmers who are committed to providing the highest quality ingredients.

This is the kind of vodka that MAKES a co*cktail. It’s award-winning for obvious reasons – nothing else compares to the distinct, smooth magic that they've achieved.

You taste the subtle cucumber just enough and it compliments the refreshing lemon + mint combo for a total home run.

This co*cktail was concocted with summer bonfires in mind. For nights when the heat backs off and leaves you in that perfect cool-warm temperature that only exists a few nights a year. But to be honest, we haven't had any of those this year and I am SO not complaining. I speak from experience when I say that this co*cktail is plenty delicious on a smoldering Midwest evening.

I'm gonna sip this cucumber vodka lemonade on hot summer nights and I'm gonna sip this cucumber vodka lemonade on those nights that melt into fall. A little crisp, a bit muggy, and in need of refreshment.

    Now THIS is MY kind of green drink!! I love cucumber in co*cktails! I tend to pair cucumber with gin, but I bet it's awesome with vodka. This looks super refreshing and SO perfect for this heat wave we've been having out here in New York!

    I've been super into cucumber drinks lately. I've always loved lemonade vodka drinks. But why have I never combined the two?! Such a good idea! I'm 100% making this.
