Cucumber-Lime-Spearmint Agua Fresca: A Perfect Summer Drink

I harvested our first Marketmore cucumbers last week, just in time to counteract the deep heat and humidity of August with a cucumber version of Agua Fresca.

I’ve also made agua frescas with cantelopes or watermelons, but this cucumber recipe is my favorite.  I use spearmint from our Herb Garden for the mint mentioned in the recipe.

Kept in a glass pitcher in the frig, Cucumber Agua Fresca is my preferred drink while the farm produces cucumbers.  It’s almost worth dealing with the heat to have a tall cool glass when I come indoors!
