Prep/cook time: 45-50 min
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 cucumber sliced
- 6 lemon's juiced, (I didn't have fresh lemons so I used about 1 cup of the store bought juice.)
Make a simple syrup by stirring the water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until just about to boil and the sugar has dissolved. Place in refrigerator 30 min, or until cool. Place the cucumber slices in a blender or a food processor; blend until mashed into a pulp. Pour the cucumber pulp into a fine mesh strainer placed over a bowl to catch the liquid; allow to sit until you have about 2/3 cup of liquid from the cucumber, about 15 min. Stir the simple syrup, cucumber liquid, and lemon juice together in a pitcher. Serve cold.
*The recipe did not say anything about adding more water but we did. It was a bit to concentrated for the Boman's.
