Cucumber Summer beverage

Now that Summer is around the corner, we have to think of ways to keep hydrated.

This beverage is a great refreshment for little ones and adults as well. And if you like a kick in your drink just convert this great beverage into an awesome cocktail I tell you what we do.

There are so many benefits in the consumption of cucumber that I really enjoy and feel good about giving it to my family with it.

Ready in: 5 Min | Serves: 1 | Complexity: Very Easy
Ingredients
  • Club Soda, sparkling mineral water or sprite (CS-SMW-S)
  • 1/2 oz lime juice (1 Tbsp.)
  • 4 Sprigs of mint
  • 6 Slices of cucumber
  • 1 oz cranberry Juice (2 Tbs)

  • Cocktail:
  • 1/4 cup vodka (Or to taste)
  • 3/4 Oz agave nectar (1 ½ Tbsp.)

Directions
  1. Place a couple of slices of cucumber in a cup, fill 1/4 way with CS-SMW-S
  2. Add lime juice, mint and cranberry juice
  3. stir well and fill with Club Soda/Sparkling mineral Water or Sprite.

  4. For Mommy and Daddy's cocktail
  5. Reduce the amount of CS-SMW-S
  6. Add vodka and agave nectar.
  7. Garnish with cucumber or mint leaf

Our little Kira does not drink any type of soda (We are happy about that) so for her we make it with plain water and she loves it.
