1 1/2 cups of vodka
2 english cucumbers; 1 peeled and coarsely chopped, 1 left whole
1 lime cut into 8 wedges
2 bottles of sparkling water
1/2 to 1 cup of ginger simple syrup
Put vodka and cucumber in a non-reactive container. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Strain; discard cucumber. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to use, up to 2 days.
Using a vegetable peeler, shave the remaining cucumber lengthwise into wide strips; discard seeds.
Fill 8 tumblers with ice. Add 3 cucumber strips and 3 tablespoons infused vodka to each glass. Squeeze, then drop, a lime wedge into each. Top with sparkling water, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of syrup.
