Cucumber Lime Mint Aqua Fresca


A magical summer cool down drink

Naturally cooling cucumber, calming, circulating and refreshing mint and the sour astringent flavour of the lime which helps increases the production of fluids in the body and can reduce the effects of summer heat help make this the ideal summer beverage.

Ingredients

  • 2 good sized organic cucumbers, ends trimmed, but peel still on, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 cup lime juice from fresh organic limes (about 5 to 10 limes, depending on how juicy they are)

  • 1 1/4 cup packed (spearmint) mint leaves (about a large handful), remove woody stems

  • Approximately 1 1/4 cup of water

Put ingredients in blender, and add enough water to fill 3/4 of blender and purée until smooth. Place a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and pour the purée through it, pressing against the sieve with a rubber spatula or the back of a spoon to extract as much liquid out as possible.

Store in fridge and serve with a sprig or mint or slice of cucumber or lime (or even a shot of your favourite alcohol -vodka, gin or cachaca) and serve over ice for a fresh summer cocktail.

optional –add honey or agave syrup to taste

Enjoy!
