This cucumber mint lemonade is just what you need this summer since the 90 degree days don't seem to be coming to an end any time soon.
I first had cucumber lemonade at an Asian restaurant. I came home and scoured the internet for a recipe. Then as luck would have it, cucumber lemonade was featured in Cook's Country magazine.
Then, I decided not to follow a recipe. Ha! Cool story, right?
Cucumber Mint Lemonade
powdered lemonade mix for 2 quarts, follow package directions for measurements (I used Country Time)
1/2 cucumber sliced thinly
a handful of mint leaves
1. Using a potato masher, smash half of the cucumbers, mint, and lemonade powder for about 3 minutes.
2. Strain cucumbers and mint leaves using a fine mesh strainer, letting the liquid drain into a large pitcher.
3. Mix cucumber lemonade powder mixture with 2 quarts water. Add remaining cucumber slices and refrigerate.
This is the perfect refreshing summer drink!
I can't wait to make another batch of this lemonade. It was so easy and sounds totally fancy :)
