Directions

  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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I have made this several times since finding the recipe and love it. I have added more water to get the flavor I wanted. I also mix a cup of water with the unpeeled cucumber in the blender to make the blending process easier. I don't mind a little cucumber pulp getting through a mesh strainer, but putting a coffee filter in my strainer creates a more refined drink. This also goes nicely with Grey Goose.

I love this recipe its refreshing when very cold. Cucumbers all come in different sizes and thicknesses (heard this one before?), So I would use 6-8 inches of the middle of a nice ripe one. Id use an english cucumber only because i find it more subtle or fresh tasting. Use Big Juicy Lemons if you plan to splash in some Grey Goose.

It's a little bit of work to make but it's fabulous! It too was a bit too sweet so I added some water and no problem. Really good! (And just for the record if you don't have fresh lemons and use lemon juice in a bottle, 1 lemon = 1/4 cup, therefore 6 lemons = 1 1/2 cups.
