Refreshing Cucumber Lemonade from Allrecipes

Ingredients

1 cup water
1 cucumber, sliced
1/2 cup white sugar
6 lemons, juiced

Instructions

  1. Make a simple syrup by stirring the water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until just about to boil and the sugar has dissolved. Place in refrigerator 30 minutes, or until cool.
  2. Place the cucumber slices in a blender or food processor; blend until mashed into a pulp. Pour the cucumber pulp into a fine mesh strainer place over a bowl to catch the liquid; allow to sit until you have about 2/3 cup of liquid from the cucumber, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir the simple syrup, cucumber liquid, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.
