Ingredients

  • 1 Cucumber
  • 2 Limes
  • ½ cup Water
  • cup Sugar
  • 8 Basil Leaves
  • 1 liter 32 ounces Club Soda

Instructions

  • Peel and seed the cucumber. Add the cucumber and 1/4 cup water to the bowl of a food processor. Process until the cucumber is liquefied.
  • Make the lime simple syrup by combining sugar, lime zest, and remaining water in a small saucepan. Heat until the sugar has melted. Chill until ready to serve. (The cucumber puree and simple syrup will keep for several days in the refrigerator)
  • To make the drink: place 2 basil leaves, the juice from 1/2 a lime, and 1 Tbs of your simple syrup in the bottom of a glass. Use the back of a spoon to muddle the basil. Add 2 Tbs cucumber puree and top with 8 oz club soda. Stir gently to mix.
