Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 6 lemons, juiced
Directions
  • Make a simple syrup by stirring the water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until just about to boil and the sugar has dissolved. Place in refrigerator 30 minutes, or until cool.
  • Place the cucumber slices in a blender or food processor; blend until mashed into a pulp. Pour the cucumber pulp into a fine mesh strainer place over a bowl to catch the liquid; allow to sit until you have about 2/3 cup of liquid from the cucumber, about 15 minutes.
  • Stir the simple syrup, cucumber liquid, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.

  1. This looks delicious and refreshing! I’ll probably sub the sugar for agave nectar though.
