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.

- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup seedless cucumber chopped
- 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.
