Yummy Cucumber Lemonade

Cucumber is the perfect complement to the traditional summer lemonade. Display it in the pitcher with cucumber and/or lemon slices.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 Great Lakes Greenhouse cucumber, sliced
  • 6 lemons, juiced

The Steps:

  1. Make a simple syrup by stirring the water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until just about to boil and the sugar has dissolved. Place in refrigerator 30 minutes, or until cool.
  2. Place the cucumber slices in a blender or food processor; blend until mashed into a pulp. Pour the cucumber pulp into a fine mesh strainer place over a bowl to catch the liquid; allow to sit until you have about 2/3 cup of liquid from the cucumber, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir the simple syrup, cucumber liquid, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold with lemon and cucumber slices.
