I have made this several times since finding the recipe and love it. I have added more water to get the flavor I wanted. I also mix a cup of water with the unpeeled cucumber in the blender to make the blending process easier. I don't mind a little cucumber pulp getting through a mesh strainer, but putting a coffee filter in my strainer creates a more refined drink. This also goes nicely with Grey Goose.
This was ok - I needed to water it down ALOT and it was still pretty sour. Not sure if I'll make it again
I love this recipe its refreshing when very cold. Cucumbers all come in different sizes and thicknesses (heard this one before?), So I would use 6-8 inches of the middle of a nice ripe one. Id use an english cucumber only because i find it more subtle or fresh tasting. Use Big Juicy Lemons if you plan to splash in some Grey Goose.
It's a little bit of work to make but it's fabulous! It too was a bit too sweet so I added some water and no problem. Really good! (And just for the record if you don't have fresh lemons and use lemon juice in a bottle, 1 lemon = 1/4 cup, therefore 6 lemons = 1 1/2 cups.
Here's how I make a full pitcher: 3 gallons of water; 2 cups of cucumber juice; 1 1/2 cups lemon juice. I have a juicer so it makes it a little easier to get the cucumber juice but I use bottled lemon juice. If you use sugar, it's 2 cups of sugar to make the syrup. I'm getting away from using sugar so I skip making the syrup, add the water, cucumber and lemon juice to a pitcher. I'm using Stevia to sweeten by the glass. For me, one packet works perfectly. My husband likes his a little sweeter so he uses 1 1/2 packets.
As soon as I read this I ran into the kitchen and made it. I had 6 lemons that needed to be used ASAP and several cucumbers I had just picked from my garden. This is very refreshing and delicious. You must love cucumbers, however!!!! to like this it is very cucuberish tasting. My family really like it. I will make it again. All mine needed was a splash of water to dilute it a bit. Next time I will double the recipe, it is so good I need more.
This lemonade is delicious. It was a little strong and sweet for me, so I added water and ice to it, but very easy to adjust to taste. Thanks for the recipe!
This was really good! I am giving it four stars instead of 5 because it seems the measurements are way off. I made four servings of this recipe and had to add enough water to make a full quart of lemonade. I also used bottled lemon juice because that's what I had on hand, and it worked great. I didn't want to throw away the cucumber pulp so I used it to make a salad dressing my mixing it with plain yogurt, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic, and dill. It turned out pretty good!
