Basil Cucumber Mojito
Agua Fresca de Pepino (Cucumber Limeade)
According to Allrecipes users, even cucumber skeptics will love this limeade. "This is a delicious and refreshing way to up your water intake throughout the day," raves reviewer Paula. "I really think people who aren't fond of cucumber by itself will like this."
You need just three easy-to-find ingredients to make this cool and refreshing summertime mocktail. The secret sauce? One large bottle of lemon-lime carbonated beverage (such as Sprite).
Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita
Spice up your next cocktail hour with this jalapeno-spiked marg. If you're sensitive to spicy foods, don't worry—fresh cucumber adds a brightness that dulls the pepper's heat. Don't pull this drink out of the fridge too early, as the flavors need time to meld.
Virgin Cucumber Mojito
Here's a fun summer mocktail that party guests of all ages will love. You need just four ingredients: cold water, ice, a cucumber, and a packet of mojito-flavored beverage mix (such as Crystal Light).
Mint Citrus Water
Water, but make it fancy. Lemons, limes, cucumbers, and mint leaves add flavor and fun to boring ol' H20. You only need about 10 minutes of prep time, but make sure to allow about two days for the flavors to meld.
Spicy Sparkling Cucumber Cocktail
Cucumber Pear Smoothie
This delicious and nutritious green smoothie—made with cucumbers, pears, and pineapples—has a secret protein-packed ingredient: a can of white beans.
