#BostonPotluck Fresh + Festive Cocktail

Live. Blog. Follow along the potluck on social media with the hashtag #BostonPotluck! Champagne Thursday shares her recipe next week.

Today I am sharing a festive, fresh, and "skinny" cocktail for the holiday season.

My go-to drink when out and about at bars is a vodka (typically Tito's) with club soda and a squeeze of lemon & lime. This past summer, I switched it up and got some muddled cucumber instead of lemon & lime and love how light this drink is! I decide to create a spin on this drink for #BostonPotluck. It's so easy and has minimal ingredients.
Fres and, Festive Vodka Soda Cocktail

Recipe: Fresh + Festive Vodka Soda

For the drink:

  • Vodka of your choice 
  • Club soda water

For the ice cubes:
  • pomegranate  seeds (I used frozen but can use fresh!)
  • 1/2 small cucumber, washed & diced

Directions for the ice cubes:
  • divide the pomegranate seeds and cucumber among the ice cubes in the tray
  • freeze!

 Directions for 1 drink: via NYT Cooking
  • Fill your glass of choice with the ice cucumber and pomegranate cubes.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of vodka then 1/2 cup of club soda.
  • Optional: festive straw
