Boozed + Infused

Infusing liqueurs at home with inspiring and seasonal ingredients

Cucumber Vodka


This is a very simple infusion. Peel and slice a cucumber, add vodka to cover. Let infuse for a week, remove the cucumber slices, and enjoy! I let this infuse for about 2 weeks, but I don’t think the extra week did too much for the flavor.

The end result is refreshing and clean. It will be perfect for cocktails!

Cucumber also makes a great addition to lots of other liquors. Try it in gin or rum…

  1. mmmm! makes me think of summer!

  2. Try this with a mellower gin such as Plymouth some time – it’ll knock your socks off!

  3. do you refridgerate it when you infuse it?

    • No, I did not refrigerate the cucumber vodka either during or after the infusion. It did not require it, although you could do that if you prefer it colder.

      Some infusion recipes say to put in the refrigerator, but typically if the alcohol content is high enough (even with the addition of the substance that is infusing into the booze) it doesn’t require refrigeration.
      * I’m not an expert, so you may want to verify that!

  4. Beautiful shot of your vodka infusion. Soju is also a good medium for cucumbers as well as other veggies, fruits and flowers.

  5. This is the best! I made a cocktail mixed with homemade ginger liqueur…my new favorite!

  6. I made this for the basil and lime cocktail for a party in March. After two weeks the cucumber started to look sad so I blended it. It’s refrigerated and tastes fine to me, even now, in July. But no one else will drink my chunky cucumber vodka. Suggestions?
