Cucumber Mint Lemonade

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 :)
