Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 large cucumber peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1 cup lemon juice squeezed from ~5 to 6 lemons
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves packed; add more for a mintier taste
  • 1/2 cup honey sub maple syrup to make vegan
  • 4 to 6 cups water for serving
  • Cucumber slices, lemon wedges, and mint leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Combine the cucumber, lemon juice, mint leaves, and honey in a blender. Blender until smooth, adding some water as needed to promote blending.
  • Place a mesh sieve over a pitcher. Pour the cucumber mixture through the sieve. Use a wooden spoon to push down the mixture to squeeze out all of the juice as needed. Remove the sieve and discard the pulpy mixture.
  • Stir in about 4 cups of water, taste, and add more as desired. You could also use sparkling water. Serve over ice with garnishes.

Notes

  • Keep in a covered pitcher in the fridge for up to 5 days. Stir well before serving.
