Agua Fresca de Pepino con Limon

Makes 4 6-ounce servings.

In your blender, add:

  • 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup hot tap water, blend to dissolve sugar (use sugar to taste)
  • 1 medium cucumber, washed, ends cut off (do not peel)
  • juice of 2 large limes or 4 small limes
  • 1 cup water
  • 12-16 ice cubes

Cut cucumber into 2″ cubes and add to blender along with lime juice and water. Blend until
smooth. Add ice cubes, as many as needed to make the drink really “chilly.” Blend until drink is
consistency of a smoothie. Pour into a wine glass and serve immediately.
If you want to add some pizzaz, add one ounce of clear tequila for a refreshing margarita.
