Cucumber Mint Mojito

A refreshing green drink that is equally perfect to serve on St. Patrick’s Day or a warm weather day.

Ingredients

  • Ice
  • One 12-ounce can limeade
  • 12 ounces gin or vodka
  • 3 baby Persian cucumbers
  • About 1 ½-2 cups fresh mint leaves

Directions

Fill blender halfway with ice. Add the remaining ingredients process until slushy. Add optional soda, if using. Pour into glasses and serve.

Cucumber Shopping Tip

There are three different types of cucumbers: slicing, pickling, and “burpless.” If you're making sandwiches, you might want to try the “burpless” variety which are naturally seedless and are less likely to cause gas.

Cucumber Cooking Tip

Salting your cucumber slices and allowing them to drain over a colander for about an hour will get rid of any excess water and keep your sandwich from becoming soggy.
