I stopped drink soda a few years ago. I have only been drinking tea and water. Come to find out I can’t drink caffeinated tea either. I recently went to PF Chang’s and I saw the drink strawberry cucumber limeade. I was a little intrigued and order it. It was so good. Very refreshing. I found mydeptfreeroad.com had the recipe and I tried it out. I think I want to tweak it a little so I can make a pitcher of it so my girls can have some too. But all and all 2 thumbs up. This is going to be my summer drink this year.
What you need:(this makes enough for one drink)
- Small mason jar or something that has a lid to it
- Two whole strawberries
- Julienne about half a cucumber(use a potato peeler to slice, don’t slice where the seeds are)
- 1.5 oz fresh squeeze lime juice(about 3 small limes)
- 3 tbsp pure cane sugar
- 1.5 oz water
Add sugar, water and lime juice in a glass. Muddle(crush with a spoon or a muddler) the strawberries and add the julienne cucumbers. Add ice cubes and lid. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Neat trick my husband to me about. Use a straw and use the straw up the bottom of the strawberry all the way through. This removes the stem easy and can be used as a decoration as well.
