Cucumber Cooler

There is something incredibly refreshing about the combination of cucumber, mint and lemon.  Sipping on this trio makes me want to lounge around at a spa in a lush white robe.  When the barometer begins to rise, I look for ways to cool-down, espeically when there isn't a beach/pool around and of course when I don't want to eat ice cream.  This recipe for a cucumber cooler is as invigorating I'd say as taking a quick dip in the ocean and my version is healthy and really quenches your thirst.
A Few Things: Instead of a lime, I used a lemon and in place of the club soda I used seltzer, as I didn't want this drink to be that sweet.  I then added honey to taste.  This was the perfect beverage to sip on during a warm sunny day.

  2. These drinks look tasty, although I must admit I have never thought of mixing cucumber in other than a salad before :).

    I'll make sure to try your recipe, once I get tired of the old good lemonade with ice.

    Those green hues feel so summery ♥
