Cucumber and Mint Drink

Thanks to a good friend’s visit in which she brought us a baked gift, we opted for a drink this week as opposed to our scheduled lovely carrot and pineapple cake; recipe that we will have to share with you next week.

As for the main ingredients for this refreshing green drink, you will need:

  • semillas de un melon = seeds of one melon
  • un pepino en trozos = one cucumber in chunks
  • 10 hojas de menta (machacadas) y una ramita para decorar = 10mint leaves (crushed)and a sprig to decorate
  • 4 cucharadas de azucar (mas o menos, al gusto) = 4 tablespoons of sugar (more or less, to taste)
  • agua =  water

  • Spoon out the seeds
  • Put them in a blender with the cucumber, mint leaves, sugar and  250-500ml of water at high speed until well blended

  • Pass through a strainer, add enough water to make around 1 litre of drink and mix

  •  Chill and serve garnished with the sprig of mint

  • Sit down and enjoy!

Happy drinking!
