Food & Drink

As a Southerner, warm-weather cocktails often involve one key ingredient: cucumber. A cucumber-based drink is crisp and refreshing, and is a great option to serve during an alfresco cocktail hour to help guests cool off on a warm afternoon. This recipe is a creative concoction that combines EFFEN Cucumber Vodka with super-hydrating coconut water (not to be confused with creamy coconut milk) and zingy kiwi fruit.

EFFEN Cucumber Coconut Palm

1 ½parts EFFEN Cucumber Vodka

1 ½ parts coconut water

1 small kiwi or half of a large kiwi, peeled

¾ parts simple syrup


Combine ingredients, squeezing or muddling the kiwi, in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Strain and pour into a tall glass and serve with ice.
