simple 4 ingredient recipe! here is all you need.

I CANT FIND SOME OF THESE INGREDIENT WHAT CAN I SUB?

If you cant find frozen limeade try a frozen lemonade and still use  limes to help with the lime flavor.

Try using lemon-lime soda if you can’t find ginger ale.

HOW TO MAKE CUCUMBER LIMEADE

  • In a large drink dispenser (about 2 gallons) Add your frozen concentrate.
  • Pour in your soda
  • Stir together gently.
  • Add in your cucumbers

KEY PRO-TIP TO HAVE THE CUCUMBER INFUSION

Make this drink about 30 minutes before serving and add the cucumber. This helps the flavors to marry and the drink really take on that fresh cucumber flavor everyone loves!

PRO TIP: KEEP EVERYTHING CHILLED BEFORE

Before combining the drinks chill the ginger ale and wait to add ice until the cucumber has infused, right before serving. This will help the drink also from becoming watered down. If you can store in a fridge before serving.

WHAT GARNISHES CAN I ADD TO CUCUMBER LIMEADE?

There are so many different fun garnishes you can add to make this drink extra fancy.

  1. fresh lime slices or wedges
  2. during the holiday season add cranberries
  3. cucumber swirls.

HOW DO I MAKE CUCUMBER GARNISHES?

Slice your cucumber very thing. Roll them as desired. I like to use toothpicks to stabilize them and throw them in the freezer.

The cool crisp flavor of the cucumber combined with the tart limeade and bubbles equals perfection!!!  Try this for your next party and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
