Cucumber Lemonade with Mint
Summer is here and it is hot outside and my daughter Laila and I have been trying to stay cool with this refreshing drink! I love lemonade and I love a good cucumber drink or cocktail as well. :) This recipe is so easy, delicious and can be used as is or you could add vodka to make it an adult drink!
Here is what you I did:
- Need a blender
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice – 5 or 6 lemons depending on size
- 1 cup or a little more chopped cucumbers – I use and English Cucumber
- 2 large fresh mint leaves
- 2 cups water
- 2 tbsp – Organic Agave Nectar – ( if you want it sweeter add more to taste )
Then just add everything to a blender and blend until smooth. Next, hold a small strainer over your glass pitcher and pour just the juice into the pitcher. I like to serve this over lots of ice and garnish with lemon slices, cucumber slices and some fresh mint! :)
I hope this post has inspired you to try this very impressive drink to cool you down this summer and to serve at a party to delight your friends!!!!
