Cucumber, lemon and lime cooler
Make a jug of our zesty cucumber cooler to impress your guests. It’s the perfect refresher on a warm day.
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 2 limes, thinly sliced
- 1 tbs caster sugar
- 1/2 cup mint sprigs
- 1 continental cucumber, peeled into ribbons
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1 tsp bitters
- 6 cups (1.5L) lemonade or soda water
Place the lemon, lime, sugar and half the mint in a large bowl. Use the end of a rolling pin to crush until the lemon and lime release their juices. Transfer to a large jug.
Add the cucumber to the lemon mixture in the jug. Top with the ice and remaining mint. Drizzle with the bitters. Top with lemonade or soda water. Stir well before dividing among serving glasses.
