3 c. water
¾ c. fresh lemon juice (6-8 medium lemons)
1 large cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
2 t. jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, finely minced
1/3 c. honey, preferably local
Rosemary sprigs with lower leaves removed
Cucumber chunks or slices
Jalapeno chunks or slices
- Add water, lemon juice, cucumber, jalapeno, and honey to a blender and blend until completely liquefied. Taste and add more jalapeno and/or honey, if desired. Blend again if necessary.
- Pour liquid through a fine mesh strainer to remove any larger particles and transfer mixture to a large pitcher. Place in refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
- To serve, pour over ice and garnish with slices of lemon, cucumber, and/or jalapeno. For a fancier presentation, thread chunks of cucumber and jalapeno onto sprigs of rosemary to garnish each glass.
