No, the title of the recipe is not a typo nor am I going off the deep end, this recipe is for real and tastes great! A woman I know brought it to a gathering we had been invited to and asked us to try it. The woman’s daughter in law had made it for them recently and they all really liked it. I was game, it was a really hot evening and she told us it would be very refreshing.
When I was given the glass with the drink, the aroma of the cucumber was the first thing I noticed but when I took a sip, it was actually the lime flavor I tasted. Weird, I know. I first tried the drink just as she gave it to us, but the second time I tried it she added a bit of sparkling water or club soda on top and that too was wonderful. Either way if you give this drink a chance I think you will really enjoy it and so will your kids. It can be a new and exciting way to use of some of the cucumbers you have from your garden right now. Enjoy!!!! For comments/questions email firstname.lastname@example.org
Cucumber Lime Aid
Juice of 6 limes
1 cucumber mashed
1 cup sugar ( or less depending on how sweet you want it)
Juice limes. Peel and place cucumber in a food processor. Add cucumber and sugar to the lime juice. Add enough cold water to make 2 quarts. Let the drink rest in frig or on counter to allow the flavors to blend. Using a small drink strainer over a glass, strain the cucumbers from the drink before serving. Serve over ice. You can top the drink with a bit of sparkling water or club soda. Delish!
