I don’t post a lot of drink recipes but this summer I have been enjoying a lot of different drinks using plenty of fresh produce like this cucumber, mint and lime refresher! I almost always have a glass of water with my meal or while I am relaxing or sitting at my work desk and why not jazz that water up with some fresh fruits, berries, vegetables and herbs? You can simply add the fresh fruits, berries, vegetables and herbs to your water and enjoy the hint of flavour that they add or you can puree them into the water and strain any remaining solids to get an even more powerful hit of flavour! The combinations of flavours are near endless from simply adding lime or lemon juice to water to classics like lemonade, raspberry lemonade, etc. and adding a veggie or a fresh herb is always a fun way to go. For this drink I go with cucumber, mint and lime juice for a super refreshing drink that is absolutely thirst quenchingly good!
Call it a mint and cucumber limeade!
Puree it if wish!
Cucumber, Mint and Lime Refreshers

Might add volka!
Or a little bit of lemon grass. Can't be better for a drink while reading in the garden!

These are perfect for any get together, everyone will love them!
This is a TRADITIONAL MEXICAN AGUA FRESCA. Quit appropriating what has been a staple in Mexican homes for YEARS. GTFO.
Get over yourself. She is posting her version of a healthy drink she enjoys and thought would be helpful to others
With lime juice, I also enjoy refreshing iced green tea in summer.
