Lemony Cucumber Cooler

Cucumber is a widely cultivated plant in the gourd family.It is creeping vine that bears cylindrical fruit that are used as culinary vegetables. Cucumbers are a warm season vegetable. This low calorie  vegetable contain many nutritional benefits including hydrating properties and valuable nutrients.

 For day 2 under the theme "Summer Coolers", am here with yet another drink to keep yourself cool. To keep yourself hydrated in this hot weather am here with a summer cooler with the combination of cucumbers and lemon. Which not only  gives this drink  a nice and tangy flavor  but also keep your body cool. This is refreshing and healthy for the whole family. Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients:

Cucumber Juice 1 cup
Lime juice 1/4 cup
Black salt 1 spoon
Sugar 1/4 cup ( increase or decrease depending on your taste)
Chilled water 3 cups

Preparation:

Wash and cut cucumbers into medium size chunks. 
Blend in mixer or food processor.
Press through a sieve  to extract the juice.
Add cucumber juice to a mixing jar and add sugar, black salt  and lime juice.
Mix everything together till sugar and black salt  completely dissolves.
Now add chilled water and give it a stir .
Add the juice into serving glasses and top it with lime wedges and cucumber slices.
Serve chilled.
