Julia and I hosted last week I tried my hand at a not-so-average lemonade recipe: Cucumber Lemonade.
Using this recipe that I found through Glitter Guide, I dove right into making the iconic summer refresher with a twist. It turned out to be less of a hassle than I expected, but I did make a few adjustments.
Instead of 10 cups of water, I used six and then poured the elixir over a generous amount of ice. Since our lemonade sat in a bottle on the table, this helped keep it cool without watering it down.
If you're crazy for cucumber (since you're reading this, you may be), I would up the ante of slices to around 20. The 12 slices add a very light cucumber hint.
Lastly, for an extra zing, muddles some mint leaves and add them to the lemonade. They'll make the drink all the more refreshing and also make a lovely garnish!
NOTE: The lemons from our tree are pink lemons. Don't forget to check out tips for hosting an iced tea party of your own!
