Spring 2017 Rave Reviews

Cucumber Basil IPA Cooler

Ahhhh… springtime. The temperature begins to rise, flowers start to bloom and gray skies slowly turn blue. This time of year calls for a deliciously light and refreshing cocktail. Jacquelyn Dodd (a.k.a The Beeroness) has created the perfect IPA cooler to enjoy as the weather warms.



  • 1 ½ oz. vodka
  • 2 basil leaves, chopped (2 additional small leaves for garnish)
  • 6 slices of cucumber (2 for garnish)
  • 3 oz. sparkling lemonade
  • 3-6 oz. IPA with citrus notes, like Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo


Add the vodka, basil, cucumbers and sparking lemonade to a
shaker half filled with ice. Shake several times, pour into an IPA
glass, straining the cucumber and basil. Pour beer into the glass
and gently stir. Garnish with a cucumber slice and basil leaves.
Serve immediately.
