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.

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!

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.

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

i just made this! it is really refreshing. the cucumber slices add a sweet and cool flavor. i had to double the ingredients because i have a big pitcher :) and i used sparkling water with lime instead of soda. one cool thing i noticed while mixing, if you add sugar to the finished product (some people like it sweet!) it fizzles like a science experiment
