Refreshing Cucumber LemonadeTastebuds May 14, 2023
This homemade Lemonade recipe is so sweet (no pun intended). It is the perfect springtime transition into warmer weather that leaves you refreshed and satisfies your sweet tooth in one drink.
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- 6 lemons, juiced
Make the simple syrup: Combine water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until just about to boil and sugar has dissolved. Place in refrigerator until cool, about 30 minutes.
Blend cucumber in a blender or food processor until mashed into a pulp. Pour cucumber pulp into a fine mesh strainer placed over a bowl; allow to sit until you have about 2/3 cup of cucumber juice in the bowl, about 15 minutes.
Stir simple syrup, cucumber juice, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.
