    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 200ml of liquid from the cucumber, about 15 minutes.
    3. Stir the simple syrup, cucumber liquid, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.

    excellent!  -  28 May 2012


    I have made this several times since finding the recipe and love it. I have added more water to get the flavor I wanted. I also mix a cup of water with the unpeeled cucumber in the blender to make the blending process easier. I don't mind a little cucumber pulp getting through a mesh strainer, but putting a coffee filter in my strainer creates a more refined drink. This also goes nicely with Grey Goose.  -  27 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It's a little bit of work to make but it's fabulous! It too was a bit too sweet so I added some water and no problem. Really good! (And just for the record if you don't have fresh lemons and use lemon juice in a bottle, 1 lemon = 1/4 cup, therefore 6 lemons = 1 1/2 cups.  -  04 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
