Ingredients

  • 1 cup water

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 cucumber, sliced

  • 6 lemons, juiced

Directions

  1. Make the simple syrup: Combine water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until just about to boil and sugar has dissolved. Place in refrigerator until cool, about 30 minutes.

  2. Blend cucumber in a blender or food processor until mashed into a pulp. Pour cucumber pulp into a fine mesh strainer placed over a bowl; allow to sit until you have about 2/3 cup of cucumber juice in the bowl, about 15 minutes.

  3. Stir simple syrup, cucumber juice, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.
