Cucumber Lemonade (Agua de Pepino)

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and cubed
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 c water
  • Sugar to taste
Add cucumber and water to a blender and puree. Strain then add juice of lemon and sugar to taste. Serve over ice.

A variation on this refreshing treat is to shred a medium sized cucumber and stir well into two quarts of lemonade; either can be served with lemon and or cucumber slices on the glass!

Quotes

"There seem to be but three ways for a nation to acquire wealth. The first is by war, as the Romans did, in plundering their neighbors. This is robbery. The second by commerce, which is generally cheating. The third is by agriculture, the only honest way, wherein man receives a real increase of the seed thrown into the ground, in a kind of continual miracle, wrought by the hand of God in his favor, as reward for his innocent life and his virtuous industry."
~Benjamin Franklin
