A delightful lemonade flavored with cucumber, lemon zest and fresh mint.


  • 2 cucumbers
  • ¼ bunch fresh mint
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest, grated
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • For garnish:
  • ½ cup ice cubes
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Fresh mint leaves


  1. Wash the cucumbers very well.
  2. Leave their skin on and grate them in a bowl.
  3. Pound the mint leaves and lemon zest in a mortar and toss in the bowl.
  4. Stir with a spoon and transfer them in a piece of cheese cloth.
  5. Squeeze the juice into the bowl. Set aside. You can use a blender instead, but the flavors stand out with this method.
  6. Mix sugar and lemon juice in hot water until sugar dissolves.
  7. Combine this syrup with cucumber juice flavored with lemon zest and mint.
  8. Chill it at least for an hour and serve with ice cubes, mint leaves and cucumber slices.
