Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Cucumber.

A super easy, absolutely incredible, refreshing drink! You could add a little rum in there if you wanted to! Either way, it is perfect on hot days!!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 small-medium cucumber, peeled and sliced into chunks
Juice of 2-3 limes
More water

SIMPLE SYRUP (makes about 1/3 of a cup)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water

*** NOTE: You can add less simple syrup, or more! Go by taste!

A few cucumber slices (optional)
A slice of lime (optional)
A few mint leaves (optional)


MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP: Add water and sugar to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Cool then set aside.

MAKE THE LIMEADE: In a blender, add cucumber, lime juice, simple syrup. Then add more water to within an inch of the top of the blender.
Blend until cucumbers are well chopped. At this point, you can strain through a strainer if you want, we just don't bother!
Garnish each glass and serve over ice.
