About this deal

Stay Hydrated. Cucumber contains tons of water and blends easily into a refreshing, hydrating cucumber drink with a little lime and mint. You’ll find cucumber syrup captivating. Cucumber flavor is outwardly subtle and yet remarkable penetrating. There is this ability of that light flavor to just come through whenever you use it. The notes always ring out, not blaring but surely tinkling. Also Great for Small Batches. Simply mix up the cucumber base and wait to combine it with seltzer until you are ready to drink! Also, if you’ve got some homemade margarita mix at your house, you could use that in place of the lime juice and simple syrup. I have notations on how to do that below, too. How to make cucumber margaritas

Serve up your cucumber lime agua frescas with fresh cucumber slices, lime slices, and sprigs of fresh mint for garnish. Usually, when I think of cucumbers I think of them as an addition to salads or dips, or maybe as part of a crudité platter. Cucumber is great in salads and sauces…but an even better use for this green veggie, in our opinion? In drinks! Here’s one that’s absolutely perfect for summer: Cucumber Lemonade! The vegetable adds a cooling, vegetal finish to any drink that’s reminiscent of spa water. Combine that with the zing of the lemon, and it’s the ideal drink for sipping on the patio for a summer barbecue. It’s easy to make: here’s how it’s done! Ingredients for cucumber lemonade We started craving soups, stews, apples, and cinnamon in the mornings and evenings, but the hot mid-day temperatures still call for ice-cold, refreshing drinks. Limes: I prefer the flavor of freshly squeezed lime with the cucumber but lemons work too. One thing is certain, for the most delicious cucumber drink, you must use fresh lime or lemon juice.

Cucumber vodka is vodka that’s infused with the flavor of cucumbers. You can easily make cucumber vodka at home: you’ll simply infuse vodka with cucumber slices for 7 days. It’s perfect for summer drinks, especially this Cucumber Gimlet! Go to Cucumber Vodka. You start by dicing up the cucumber – I peel mine, but this step is totally optional. Add the diced cucumbers to your blender (or juicer) along with water, lime juice, mint leaves, salt, and maple syrup. Blend it all up, then run it through a strainer to remove any seeds or fibrous bits. Great Flavor! You will love how the flavor of the cucumber really shines in this cucumber agua fresca and how perfectly the lime and mint pair with the subtle herby flavor of the cucumber.

Add the sugar and water to a saucepan, stir to mix a bit, then put the heat on medium high. Bring to a boil, simmer for a minute. Remove from the heat and add the cucumber, both the peel and the chunks. Let cool to room temperature, strain into a jar, and refrigerate. [I have seen a suggestion to let this stand in the fridge overnight before straining to get the maximum cucumber flavor but I don’t think this is actually necessary; a couple of hours cooling to room temperature seems to work just fine.] Add some fresh fruit to blend with the cucumbers. Blueberries, strawberries, and watermelon are a few of my favorites. First and foremost, make the cucumber juice. Peel the cucumbers, and toss them into the blender. Blend for a minute or so, until well combined, then strain into a pitcher. Voila! You’ve got cucumber juice. 🙂 This traditional Mexican drink is also called Agua Fresca de Pepino or Cucumber Agua Fresca (aka Cucumber Fresh Water). It’s made by blending the cucumbers with water and adding just a touch of sweetener. In Mexico, it’s a popular drink served by street vendors!

This year, I have been experimenting with life beyond “simple” syrup. Here’s a lovely idea, just one step up from the basic sugar + water of “simple” syrup. Add a cucumber, including the peel.
