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!
