I’m not normally one to pass on a cocktail, but every once in a while, it’s nice to go the mocktail route. Especially if you’re entertaining guests who don’t drink, having some refreshing summer mocktail ideas up your sleeve is never a bad idea. My go-to is this effervescent Cucumber Lime Lavender Spritzer. I found it in the April edition of Cooking Light, and I’ve yet to find a mocktail I enjoy more. It’s low calorie and balances floral, tangy, and sweet flavors perfectly. Plus, you can add a splash of gin to turn this cucumber mocktail into a delightful summer tipple. Keep reading for instructions and a printable recipe card!

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this absolutely delish cucumber mocktail:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar or sugar replacement (I use Swerve)
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp dried culinary lavender (I found mine here)
  • 3 cups chopped peeled cucumbers (equivalent to 3 average-sized cucumbers)
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice (equivalent to the juice of 4 limes)
  • 6 cups club soda

I haven’t tried many cucumber mocktail recipes, but I honestly can’t imagine one that’s yummier or more refreshing than this Cucumber Lime Lavender Spritzer! Keep reading for a step-by-step tutorial. You’ll also find a printable/downloadable recipe card at the bottom of this post!

Start by combining the water and sugar in a small saucepan. If you’re looking for a lower carb alternative to white sugar, I love Swerve. It’s natural, and it tastes great! Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. Next, remove from heat and toss in mint leaves and edible lavender. Allow them to steep for 15 minutes. Filter through a strainer and allow to cool.

Next, combine the chopped peeled cucumber and lime juice in a food processor. Process until smooth.

Finally, grab a pitcher and combine mint-lavender simple syrup, cucumber-lime puree, and club soda. Stir well. Serve over ice, garnish with mint sprigs and lime wedges if you have any left over, and enjoy!
