Ingredients

  • 3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped (6 cups)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • 24 ounces club soda
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey

Directions

  1. In a blender, puree cucumbers and water. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve set over a large bowl, pressing on solids (you should have about 2 cups juice; refrigerate overnight, if desired). In a pitcher, mash fresh mint leaves with back of a wooden spoon until bruised. Add cucumber juice, lime, club soda, and agave nectar or honey; stir to combine. Fill four glasses with ice, top with drink, and serve with thinly sliced cucumber.
