ICED CUCUMBER MINT TONIC

ICED CUCUMBER MINT TONIC

Ingredients

I LOVE THIS DRINK BECAUSE IT'S CRISP WITH A COOLING GREEN COLOR AND IS MILDLY SWEET

THE MILDLY BITTER TONIC WORKS BEAUTIFUL WITH THE FRESH MINT.

FOR 2

2 LIGHT GREEN CUCUMBERS PEELED

6-8 FRESH MINT LEAVES WASHED, STALKS REMOVED

1 APPLE PEELED, DESEEDED AND QUARTERED

250 ML TONIC WATER

ICE

3 HIGHBALL GLASSES

ICE CUBES

SPRIGS OF MINT LEAVES FOR GARNISHING

Instructions

PUREE THE APPLE, MINT AND CUCUMBER IN A FOOD PROCESSOR. ADD ONE AND A HALF CUPS OF CHILLED WATER AND PUREE AGAIN. STRAIN THROUGH A FINE SIEVE. USE THE BACK OF A SPOON TO PRESS DOWN AGAINST THE PULP TO EXTRACT ALL THE JUICE. DISCARD THE PULP.

DIVIDE BETWEEN TWO GLASSES FILLED WITH ICE. TOP UP WITH TONIC WATER. GARNISH WITH MINT LEAVES IF DESIRED, STIR AND SERVE IMMEDIATELY.
