How to Make It

Step 1    Make the spice mix

Chef's Notes

Cucumber Mix & Cucumber Ice Cubes:

In a medium bowl, mix the juice of 2 English cucumbers with 2 1/2 ounces fresh lemon juice, 2 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice, 3/4 ounce Simple Syrup and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Reserve 8 ounces for the drinks; pour the rest into an ice cube tray and freeze. Makes 8 ounces Cucumber Mix and about 1 dozen ice cubes.--Todd Thrasher
