1⁄2 teaspoon lemon zest, grated 1⁄2 cup lemon juice
4 cups hot water
5 tablespoons sugar
Wash the cucumbers very well, leave their skin on and grate them in a bowl. Add lemon zest to cucumber, then
Stir and transfer them in a piece of cheese cloth.
Squeeze the juice into the bowl. Set aside. You can also blend up the cucumber and lemon in a blender and then strain. Mix sugar and lemon juice in hot water until sugar dissolves and combine this syrup with cucumber juice.
Chill it at least for an hour and serve with ice cubes and fresh cucumber slices.
(HINT: add a shot of vodka or rum for a delightful summer cocktail)
