The summer heat is terrible than ever this year so I make it a point to keep a bottle of lemonade in the fridge at all times. What better way to beat the heat than lemonade; right? Well, I found a better way! My lemon and Cucumber cooler with a slight hint of ginger! It is so refreshing and delicious it will brighten up your day!
Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 00 Serves: 4
Juice from 2 big lemons
Cucumber (1 ) (finely grated)
Ginger (1/4 tsp) (finely grated)
Sugar (5 tbsp)
Salt (just a pinch)
Ice cubes (1 tray)
Cold Water (3 glasses)
- In a pitcher grate the cucumber and ginger.
- Squeeze the juice from the lemon into the cucumber, add the sugar and salt to it.

- Place 4-5 ice cubes in each glass along with a cucumber stick and a slice of lemon, pour in the juice. Enjoy:)
Tips: Lemon water is an excellent antioxidant and a great source of vitamin c and also minerals like magnesium, potassium and phosphorus; hence it makes for one of the best drinks to beat the summer heat.
You may use soda instead of water if you want to have a fizzy drink.
