Cucumber Limeade

This might be the most refreshing drink ever made. It kind of tastes like spa water and lemonade got married.. in my mouth!

I love limeade even more than lemonade and the cucumbers make it extra special.

And really, any excuse to break out the juicer pleases my kid to no end. He was giddy from the word go.


The baby pointed and begged to try it so I let her have one tiny sip. It was super cute until she spit it out all over her purdy new dress. Regardless, it’s the perfect drink for those dog days of summer.
