Whenever I feel my eyes twitch, I dash to our fridge and check if we have any cucumbers in store. Cucumbers are known to contain a lot of calming and relaxing effects, and according to some answers in my Google search, cucumbers are made of 90% water, which makes them rich in hydrating properties. But if cucumbers are absent from our fridge’s inventory, a cold spoon will suffice.

But I’m not here to talk about DIY spa remedies. (In fact, this is probably the only one I know.) I’m here to tell you about this Cucumber Vodka Cooler that I believe has the ability to soothe your nerves as much as a spa day could. Or maybe even more, depending on how much you drink.

Given that the holiday season adds truckloads of backaches and headaches, it’s a nice idea to unwind and lounge on your La-Z-Boy with this Cucumber Cooler in hand as you prep yourself for another busy week ahead.

Place some cold cucumber slices on your eyes, take a sip, and you’ve just created a makeshift spa out of your tiny cubicle.
