"This is the most refreshing summer beverage you've ever tasted. It's unique in the way it infuses the flavors of fresh garden cucumbers, the tangy brightness of fresh lemons, and the lightness of an effervescent lemon-lime soda to create a delicious thirst quenching southern summer ade. Perfect when relaxing on your front porch swing on a warm summer night."

lemon juice from concentrate
3 (12 fluid ounce) cans or bottles
lemon-lime flavored soda
ice cubes, or as needed
lemon, thinly sliced
cucumber, sliced and then halved
The lemon juice concentrate used in this recipe is NOT the frozen lemonade concentrate. It is the bottled liquid concetrate from real lemons. NO sugar added. It is a very refreshing and thirst quenching beverage.
Due to some diet restrictions I made a few slight changes. I used diet sierra mist and splenda instead. It was a huge hit. I would highly recommend making in advance and allow to sit in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to meld. I did not buy enough I ran out it was such a huge hit
This is REALLY close to 5 stars! I don't like using juice concentrates because they usually have High Fructose Corn Syrup, so instead I juiced more fresh lemon. The Sprite almost hides the cucumber too much. Tastes good and refreshing too! Made for Western Region Allstars Faceless Frenzy July 2012.
I also am on diet restrictions so I used Splenda for the sugar and Diet 7up. Delicious and refreshing.... it's a perfect drink for a hot summer day!
