Cucumber Limeade Mocktail
Nothing says summertime like lemonade. Hot sunny days call for refreshing beverages that are not soda. This is a lovely cucumber-limeade mocktail guaranteed to cool you off day or night. I fell in love with cucumber mojitos years ago while vacationing in Hawaii and I had that flavor in mind when I developed this recipe. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I prefer my cocktails and mocktails less sweet and more on the tart side, so I did the same here.
This simple summer drink could not be more refreshing or easier to make. I use a muddler to mash up the cucumber which works well if only making one or two servings. If making this recipe for a larger group, I suggest blending the cucumber in a kitchen blender to speed up the process.
This cucumber limeade mocktail is a great specialty drink for small or large summer gatherings and is a bit more interesting than simply flavored water, yet still low in calories. The lime juice in this mocktail can complement any meal from fish to tacos and is a nice alternative to a heavily sugared lemonade.
