Success: Cucumber Mint Water

Cucumber Mint Water

A non-caffeinated, refreshing (and cheap!) party pleaser. Perfect for when you need to feed a crowd, but don't need to booze 'em. And, as indicated by this recipe inspiration from LowCarbYum, it's a rather loose recipe. I've recorded what I did this time that worked out well.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cucumber per 2 quarts of water (we used 3 cucumbers)
  • 2 quarts cold water (we tripled the recipe)
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • Half cup mint tea (optional)
  • 1/4c lemon juice (optional)

Directions:

  1. Slice cucumber thinly.
  2. Muddle the mint (I smash it in a mortar & pestle)
  3. Combine water, sliced cucumber, mint leaves, mint tea, and lemon juice.
  4. Refrigerate for at least an hour. The longer it rests, the stronger the cucumber flavor (and the browner the crushed mint leaves)
  5. Enjoy!

Yeah, this is a perfect summer drink. I've done this sans lemon juice (sometimes with lime instead) and it's very refreshing.
