  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir the simple syrup, cucumber liquid, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.

This was really good! I am giving it four stars instead of 5 because it seems the measurements are way off. I made four servings of this recipe and had to add enough water to make a full quart...

This lemonade is delicious. It was a little strong and sweet for me, so I added water and ice to it, but very easy to adjust to taste. Thanks for the recipe!
