PF Chang’s Strawberry Cucumber Limeade

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 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.
