Arenciata Cetriolo Spritzer
If ever there was a weekend that needed recovery from, it was this last weekend. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I ditched the PNW, Ben and Huck and headed south to Orlando! And I learned two things down there – Me and the Florida sun do not get along (girl got fried!) , and air conditioning is a gift from the gods. I also might have learned that drinks are highly over priced, and churritos and churros are not the same thing – which is highly disappointing. But back to the drinking portion of our program. Yesterday’s How to Infuse Vodka started this whole process with a two week infusion of fresh cucumbers into vodka. And it only seems fitting to make sure you had something to pour that fresh and fun concoction into – some orange Sanpellegrino, if you dare.
This is a summer staple and I always keep a jar of cucumber infused vodka in the fridge for such occasion. And let’s be honest, there is always an occasion for these. After two rounds of $8.50 of Skinny Girl Coconut Mojitos poolside, I was definitely in the mood for a cheaper, fresher and tastier alternative when I got home. These were such a cinch.
And let’s be honest, after a hopscotch across the country from Orlando to St. Paul to Seattle, a nap and one of these was just what I needed. And some aloe, too. Apparently SPF 50 does nothing for my glow-in-the-dark Pacific Northwest skin. Ow. #worthit

This looks crazy refreshing!! And you photos are so cute! This is a perfect memorial day drink!
Thanks Tieghan!! I just threw everything into the photo and hoped it worked haha
If only you could’ve gotten this infused vodka past TSA, we would’ve been making these in the room.
Blasted TSA!! Why are they such downers – these pool side would’ve been so much better than $10 wimpy coconut mojitos! hhah
Yum! Can’t wait to make this! After a few I won’t can’t that I can’t pronounce it, ha ha!
I thought about that too!! Just call it an orange cucumber sprtizer , but saying arenciata five times fast after a few would be fun!
What Gina said! lol Would’ve been fun to have had this over the weekend! I hope your burn is healing up fast!
The burn is healing and turned into a great tan! Except I look like a striped zebran now… uhh whoops haha
That spritzer looks so nice and refreshing!
You just made my day by using cucumber vodka in a cocktail! Looks so yummy!
I love a good spritzer. Looks so relaxing and refreshing!
Will you bring this to Austin?? I feel like we need to start a party train and this is the golden ticket!
This will definitely be made down in Austin – I don’t care if we have to buy the artificially flavored stuff, we’ll make pitchers of these!
Now this is a drink I can get down with.. I think this should replace that cucumber water that is always at the spa. Just Sayin 🙂
Totally – what’s the point of woosey flavored water?! Just gimme the good stuff and get it over with! I’d be so much more relaxed with some cucumber spa-flavored vodka!
Seriously, this needs to be in the house at all times. Excuse me while I go make some 😉
I JUST WANT TO DRINK ALL OF THESE!
In August we can!!! Holla!!!
Man, does that look SO good on this stinkin’ hot Texas day! Great recipe, Megan!
i want to drink all of this with my general tso’s..come on over, girlfriend! 😉
This looks so refreshing! I certainly don’t miss the humidity of Florida, it was so exhausting and I always felt like I needed multiple showers in a day!
What beautiful drinks!
These sound incredibly refreshing!
This looks amazingly refreshing! So yummy 🙂
Holy refreshment – this drink is money!!!
We just had a cocktail at our last book club with cucumber infused vodka, she bought it, but I think homemade would be better…for sure! I made bacon infused vodka once…OMG it’s the best for bloody marys! Can’t wait to meet you next week at Blogher Food ; )
This absolutely needs to happen this weekend!
Refreshing summer cocktails. I love these type of infusions, especially cucumber. Have a great weekend1
