This cocktail is inspired by a recent trip I took to Palm Springs. I found this drink at the Ace Hotel called The Desert Facial. It was super refreshing, the perfect poolside drink! So I started making a version of it at home. It’s my favorite summer drink!
One of the best things about this drink is that it tastes just as amazing as a mocktail! If you’re hosting a party with a mix of people who do and don’t drink, just make a pitcher of this but leave the Rum on the side for people to add if they like!
Summer Nights Cocktail, makes one.
Combine all ingredients and stir to combine. Pour over ice and serve! This is a great cocktail to make ahead. You can easily quadruple the recipe and store in a small pitcher until you are ready to serve guests later that day.

P.S. We’ve gotten a few questions about how to make cucumber juice. There are two main options. First, if you own a juicer then, of course, you can simply juice raw cucumbers. If you don’t own a juicer you can still make fresh juice—here’s how. First cube your vegetable or fruit into bite size pieces (discarding any peels, or rinds). Place in a blender or food processor and puree. Pour the mixture into a fine mesh sieve and use a spoon to press the pulp into the mesh, releasing as much juice as you can. I usually have a large bowl set under my sieve, so I don’t miss any of the juice.

These look super tasty. And the paper straws are really cute!, I haven’t seen orange ones before. Can’t wait to give this cocktail a try. It seems like the perfect drink for summer 🙂

This looks super delicious and refreshing for the summertime heat in Arizona! Thanks for sharing! x
It’s great with gin, too (had it last night–I’m not a big rum fan)…and I’m sure tequila would work wonderfully as well. So refreshing! thanks for sharing!

This sounds soooo good!
I am allergic to pineapple so won’t be trying it. Although I sure would risk an attack for these
Thanks for sharing how you juice your cucumber for this! I don’t have a juicer, so I’ll be giving this method a try. This sounds super refreshing! 🙂
Awesome! This sounds so refreshing!
Cari- We just like them. 🙂 We always disclose when we are working with a company. We will always feature products or resources we just like though. Why not? 🙂
This looks delicious!
This looks absolutely delicious, with or without rum! 🙂

In Belgium you don’t work with ounces for beverages. Would you know how much liter it would be?
Where is that spoon from? I love that handle design! xoxo
I also would love to know where you got the cute spoon!
Refreshing drink! Perfect for summer! Thanks for sharing my dear 🙂 It’s good that it can be a mock tail too!
Yum, how great! And cucumber juice sounds so refreshing. Would love to try this.
First off, let me say I love, love, love your blog! Makes me smile with every post:)
But I just gotta know, what’s up with all the Jarritos drinks? Do you just happen to love it? Or is it a plug? Just curious….
That looks delicious right about now, I just may have to make that this weekend.. its too hot here in TX! Also, that wooden arrow spoon is so cool, where can i get one?!
Sounds yummy. I’m going to try this one out on my gal pals. Sitting around the pool sipping on this will be refreshing.
aw man! I don’t have a juicer… can’t make cucumber juice.
