Cucumber Lemony Cooler Recipe

Cucumber Lemony Cooler Recipe:

The twist of cucumber and smoky hint of black salt added to fresh lemonade to make an awesome summer cooler.

The temperature continues to torture us here in Delhi and the kitchen is like a furnace, keep me there for an hour and you could have a perfectly baked Anu for dinner. So though at the start of this month I had promised myself at least a post a day but now I wonder if I will be able to keep my promise. It is too soon to give up already so I pulled up my socks and started off with another refreshing summer drink that could just get me going.

Now, on a serious note keeping oneself sufficiently hydrated is the key to fight the extremes of this weather. In my ever going quest for healthy, refreshing yet delicious summer coolers I today stirred together Cucumber and Lemon juice with a few other ingredients sitting in the comforts of my air conditioned room and ended up absolutely delighted. The drink was refreshing, healthy and truly summery.

Ingredients (Serves 3-4):

  • 350 gms English Cucumber (we need 1 cup juice)
  • 60 ml (one shot glass full) lemon juice
  • 3/4th cup crystal sugar (preferably powdered)
  • 1 tsp Black Salt (kala namak)
  • 3 cups chilled water
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon wedges
  • Some thin long cucumber slices, 1 small English Cucumber

Preparation:

  1. Clean and cut the cucumber into chunky pieces and blend in a food processor. Press through a sieve to extract the entire juice, we need a cup full (If you have a little extra use it as a facial tonner).
  2. To the cucumber juice add sugar, if using crystal sugar stir until it completely dissolves. Then stir in the lemon juice, black salt and water. Keep it in the fridge if required to chill.
  3. Top up with a lime wedge, ice cubes and thin cucumber slice and serve absolutely chilled.

Dos and Don’ts:

  • Well just use glass containers or other non reactive vessels to stir and store the drink.
  • Oh you may even use soda instead of water, in that case just keep the cucumber-lemon syrup in the fridge and top up with chilled soda just before serving.
  • If using our Indian cucumber, do insure it is not bitter and is seedless.
