Camp Cocktails: Crane Coconut Cooler

Inspired by our favorite beach spot on the North Shore of Massachusetts, this drink is refreshing, quick to assemble, and tastes just as good sans alcohol. Cheers! 


(Makes 1) 

  • Juice from half of a lime
  • Thinly sliced cucumber 
  • Coconut water 
  • 2 oz tequila (optional) 
  • Ice 

Slicing cucumbers for the cocktail


  1. Slice cucumber into thin strips that can easily fit in the bottom of your glass.
  2. Squeeze the lime juice directly into your glass and then add 2–4 strips of cucumber. Muddle together. 
  3. Add a scoop of ice and top off with tequila (optional) and coconut water. 
  4. Shake and pour liquid into a fresh, ice-filled glass. Garnish with additional cucumber slices. 

Note: A screw-top thermos makes a great impromptu cocktail shaker, or this final step can be skipped.
