Cucumber Lemonade


Summer doesn't truly start in Seattle until July but with warm  weather and cool breeze at nights, it has been a wonderful week so far in Seattle.With warn weather comes barbeques, swimming and lemonades to enjoy the sunny weather out here.
Cucumbers are a great refreshing summer treat and I have used them in salads or had them with just salt & pepper. Today`s Cucumber Lemonade recipe is an attempt at trying cucumber and lime together~ a cold frothy concoction for a warm evening.
Ingredients & Procedure:
  1. 4 tablespoons sugar
  2. 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  3. 1/2 cup seedless cucumber chopped 
  4. 2 cups water
In a blender, combine cucumber,lime juice, water and sugar. Puree until frothy and serve chilled with few ice cubes. Garnish with lime wedges. 
Serves two.

  15. Lovely!

    Have you tried making a chilled cucumber soup? This sunny weather here is inspiring me to...

    Btw, Cilantro, did you strain after blending or directly poured them in glasses?
