1 1/2 cups fresh cucumber juice
1/2 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
1/4 cup Simple syrup
1/2 cup vodka
1 to 2 cups seltzer water (plain or lime-flavored)
Crushed ice for serving
Lime and cucumber slices for garnish

In a large pitcher, combine the cucumber juice*, lime juice, vodka, and simply syrup. Stir well and refrigerate for at least an hour. Before serving, add in the icy cold seltzer water, starting with 1 cup (add more if desired). To finish, pour the bubbly mixture over crushed ice and garnish with lime wedges and cucumber slices.

*To make the cucumber juice (if you don’t have a juicer), puree peeled seedless cucumbers (probably 2 of them) in a blender with a touch of water. Pour the puree through a fine mesh strainer into a large measuring cup.
