Strawberry Cucumber Fizz

Spring is here! Well maybe not completely… But these flavours will make you excited for spring weather. Make this drink for a group or for your family. It will be a hit with kids as well!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup sugar 1 bunch fresh mint, leaves removed from stems (save stems)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of water 1 Great Lakes Greenhouses Cucumber, half sliced, half grated
  • 1 16-ounce package fresh strawberries, rinsed with stems and leaves removed
  • 1.25 litre seltzer/sparkling water

The Steps:

  1. To make cucumber-mint simple syrup, in a small saucepan add sugar, mint stems, and 1 cup of the water and mix. Bring to a boil, stirring regularly, and cook until sugar is dissolved. Once water is boiling the sugar will dissolve within minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and add grated cucumber to the pot. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes.
  3. While simple syrup is resting, make the strawberry puree. Put 1/2 cup water and strawberries in a blender. Blend on high until liquefied.
  4. Mix together the cucumber-mint simple syrup, strawberry puree, and seltzer/sparkling water in a large pitcher.
  5. Add a generous amount of ice, along with half of the mint leaves and the sliced cucumbers.
