HOT DAYS NEED COOL DRINKS

Cucumber Lemonade

Makes 4 drinks

You could make this a more adult drink by replacing some of the water with Gin, always goes nicely with cucumber.

Ingredients1 large cucumber (cut into chunks)

2 cups water, or you could replace this with gin

1/2 cup liquid honey, adjust this to your own taste

juice of 7 lemons

3-4 cups sparkling water (or still water) 
Instructions

Add the cucumber chunks, water, honey and lemon juice to your blender and blend on high speed until very smooth.

Pour the cucumber mixture into a large pitcher through a strainer to catch any pulp that remains.

Add the sparkling water to the pitcher, along with some lemon and cucumber slices (and ice, if desired) and stir gently to combine.
Pour into glasses with a few slices of lemon and cucumber, and enjoy.
