Ingredients

Scale

Fresh Lemonade

  1. Pulse 1 English Cucumber, chopped, and mint in a mini-prep food processor, food processor or a magic bullet
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher ( I used a spouted measuring cup), pressing the solids with the back of a spoon.
  4. If making own lemonade. In a pitcher, mix together Fresh Lemon Juice, Water and Sugar until sugar has dissolved. Stir well.
  5. Or if using store bought lemonade – pour lemonade into pitcher.
  6. Pour Cucumber Mint juice into Lemonade. Stir well.
  7. Add 1/2 sliced cucumber to pitcher.
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve ( I pour the infused lemonade back into the Lemonade bottle and put in the fridge – it is a easy way to store until I am ready to serve)
  9. Per Glass: Pour cucumber mint lemonade over a glass of ice with 2 ounces of Ketel One Botanical Cucumber & Mint vodka
  10. For a Crowd: add 2 cups of vodka to the pitcher. Stir well. Serve in glasses over ice.
  11. Garnish with the remaining sprigs of mint, slice of lemon  and additional cucumber slices, if desired.

Notes

I used Minute Maid Light Lemonade because it tastes great and is easier than making my own lemonade. I also like to make it on vacation and the store bought is a great short cut that doesn’t  sacrifice flavor.

I pour the infused lemonade back into the Minute Maid container and place in fridge until read to use. It also makes it easy to throw in the cooler to bring to beach cocktails.  For the beach, we use our Govino Go Anywhere Glasses or Yeti Insulated tumblers

It will store well for a few days in the refrigerator.
