Ingredients
  • 1 large English cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • One 12-ounce can lime sparkling water or seltzer
  • Cucumber spears, for garnish
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish
Directions
  • Add the cucumber to a blender and blend on high until pureed, about 1 minute. (If your cucumber doesn't blend easily, you can add up to 2 tablespoons of water to help it along).

  • Pour the cucumber mixture into a strainer over a bowl and press the juice through, leaving the solids behind. (You should have about 1/2 cup juice.)

  • In a pitcher, stir together the cucumber juice, vodka, lime juice and agave. Pour in the sparkling water and stir. Fill 4 rocks glasses with ice and divide the spritz among them. Garnish each with a cucumber spear and mint sprig and serve immediately.
