Beat the heat with a Cucumber-Lemonade Chiller

There is no better feeling than quenching your thirst on a hot summer day. This cucumber lemonade chiller from Delish contains the perfect ingredients to do so. Just pick up some cucumbers, rosemary and lemons and you’ll be on your way to a cooler summer.

Ingredients

  • 3 large cucumbers
  • 1 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh rosemary, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
  • 1 cup(s) water
  • 6 ounce(s) (3/4 cup) gin
  • 1/2 cup(s) lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoon(s) agave syrup

Directions

1. Cut 12 thin slices of cucumber for garnish.

2. Peel and chop the rest of the cucumber; transfer to a food processor, add rosemary, and puree. Pour the puree through a fine-mesh strainer set over a medium bowl or large measuring cup. Press on the solids to extract all the juice. Add water, gin, lemon juice, and agave syrup to the cucumber juice; stir until the agave is dissolved. Divide among 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with cucumber slices and rosemary sprigs.

3. Enjoy by the pool!
