Strawberry cucumber limeade is a cool and refreshing summer drink. We had this in a restaurant few months ago and we loved it. So i wanted to replicate this at home. I didn't get it right at first time then I tried again and it came out perfect. At the restaurant they did add sparkling water/soda but I am skipping it here.

To get cucumber flavor into this drink, we are just going to muddle it. You will get enough cucumber flavor using this method. You don't have to make a cucumber juice and add it. This limeade will be a perfect welcome drink for guests at party or if you have any friends coming over to your home. They will be amazed by this fancy drink. But it doesn't need any fancy ingredients. That's awesome, right? Try and let me know the results. Now off to the recipe..

5After that, take a tumbler and add 5 cucumber slices. Muddle the cucumber with a muddler (if you have) or with a back end of a wooden spoon like I did in below pic. You don't need to mash it. We are just crushing it to release its flavor.

NOTES

You can keep the strawberry juice in the refrigerator till your serve. When you are ready to serve, just muddle strawberry and cucumber then add it to a serving glass as instructed in steps 5 to 7.

Consume it immediately once you prepa. The longer you keep the drink with cucumber, its flavor gets stronger.

Adjust the sugar quantity depends on the sweetness of the strawberries.

Instead of mudding in a separate tumbler and transferring to a serving glass, you can muddle that straightly in the serving glass. But you have to use a thicker serving glass and muddle it gently to avoid breaking it.
