Cucumber Mojito Recipe and Prairie Organic Spirits Review
When you’ve committed to eating clean, you want even your indulgences to reflect that choice. You want cocktails made with freshly squeezed lemon juice and organic honey, and the liquor you add to it needs to hold its own as well.
Enter Prairie Organics, a company whose motto states that everything is “made with respect from seed to glass.” And that refers to people, land and spirits. When you think about small batch, this is just what comes to mind, with each single vintage organic corn distilled to taste instead of a certain number of times, taking into account the climate, soil and moisture levels that make each batch unique.
If you’re into learning more about how your booze is created, Prairie has a seriously cool primer on how they cultivate their land without the use of herbicides or pesticides — call me a nature geek if you want, but I totally dig knowing that brown bats were an integral part of the making of my vodka.
Oh, and you know how we got into infusing all the things a little while back? They have suggestions (and really cute how-to videos) for doing that on their website. So cool.
As far as the taste test went, well, it was all delicious. The vodka and gin were both smooth and mixed really well with everything from tonic to juice to fresh herbs. It was hard to go wrong.
But where things really got exciting was with the cucumber vodka. Oh, you guys. The cucumber vodka with a splash of tonic over ice? That’s what this summer is going to taste like, guaranteed. Maybe occasionally joined by some watermelon and/or mint. If I had to pick a single favorite thing in my liquor cabinet right this moment, the Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka would be the winner. (And that’s saying something given what else I have in there.)
In case you’re looking for something a little more exciting than my fabulous vodka tonic suggestion, here’s a Cucumber Mojito recipe from Prairie!
What do you think this summer will taste like? Anyone else super interested in learning how the liquors they drink are made? And, a big cheers to a fab first Cocktails Week! —Kristen
Hey! Vodka is good in taste and always recommended vodka. Thanks for share the recipe.
