Ingredients

  • 1 pound cucumbers peeled if waxy, unpeeled if organic and not waxy, chopped, save 1/2 cup of sliced cucumbers for garnish
  • 2 cups lemon juice freshly squeezed (about 15 lemons)
  • 8 cups water divided
  • 2/3 cup honey raw
  • 12 ice cubes

Instructions

  • Place chopped cucumbers in the blender with 1 to 2 cups of the water. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl or into the pitcher, pressing with the back of a ladle to get all of the juice through the sieve. Discard pulp. Add ice on top of cucumber.
  • Heat 1-1/2 cups of the water on a stove top over high heat until steaming, but not boiling. Remove from heat and whisk in honey until dissolved.
  • Pour honey mixture, lemon, and water over ice and cucumber. Stir well to combine. Enjoy!
