Ever need to just cool down, but water is too…well, water…and you don’t want to drink any sugary beverages? Well do I have a solution for you:
Mmmm…doesn’t that make you thirsty???
Cucumber-Mint Seltzer. Cucumber and mint anything seem to be pretty popular these days. It is in my house anyway! Although, it is usually combined with gin in a copper cup.
We have a mint plant in the house and I love it. Having fresh mint around is wonderful! More on that another time.
For your own Cucumber Mint Seltzer, muddle 2 slices of cucumber and the leaves off of two mint springs in a glass. If you don’t have a muddler, use the end of a wooden spoon. You don’t want to necessarily pulverize the stuff, just release the yummy minty-ness.
Add you ice and then your seltzer. Find a sunny spot, put your feet up, and sip away!
And be cool as a cucumber.
