A few years ago, I discovered a cucumber soda that I fell in love with. Because it was so hard to find, I decided to experiment and come up with my own version. ~ Alan

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Mint on the Veranda brewed tea
  • 2 2/3 cups Sugar
  • 1 Cucumber peeled
  • 6 cups Club soda
  • 1 Lime

Instructions

  1. Brew Mint on the Veranda tea (make it a bit stronger than usual), then pour into a 2-quart saucepan. Add sugar and stir until dissolved over medium heat to make a simple syrup. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat.

  2. Finely grate the peeled cucumber into the syrup, then steep for 15-20 minutes. Strain out cucumber shreds.
  3. When ready to serve, combine two cups syrup with six cups of club soda. Squeeze in the juice from half a lime, then stir.

  4. Pour over ice and float a few cucumber slices in the glass or garnish with a slice of lime. Makes a 2-quart pitcher, with some syrup left over.
