Cucumber Lemonade recipe

This is a refreshing drink that really makes the most out of cucumbers but in a totally different way. Serve over ice and with some fresh slices of cucumber and lemon in your glass at your next summer party.

Ingredients:

  • 250ml water
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 cucumber
  • 6 lemons

Directions:

  1. Make a syrup with the water and caster sugar by placing both into a saucepan. Heat until the sugar is dissolved, but not boiling, then remove from the heat immediately and put into the fridge.

  2. Chop the cucumber and put into a blender. Blitz until you have a pulp, then put the pulp into a sieve over a jug and sit or push through until you have 200ml juice or liquid.

  3. Juice the lemons. Stir with the sugar syrup and cucumber liquid, then serve.

You could also make this with limes instead of lemons if you want something a little different. This recipe serves four.
