Cucumber Canna-Mint Lemonade

Cucumber mint lemonade is a staple drink for the summer. The cooling mint along with the tangy flavor of lemon and refreshing cucumber come together to cool the palate. A few drops of cannabis and, voila, the drinks are finetuned for perfection.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup of mint leaves
  • 6 lemons
  • 6 cups of water
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons of cannabis tincture
  • Additional mint and cucumber slices to garnish
  • Sweetener (sugar or honey but this is optional)

  • Glass or cup
  • Pitcher
  • Stove
  • Saucepan
  • Strainer or cheesecloth

Directions:

  1. First, make the syrup by combining sugar and 1 to 1 ½ cups of water in a saucepan.

  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool at room temperature.
  4. While the syrup cools, roll the lemons firmly using your hands or by placing it against the top of a countertop to make juicing easier.

  6. Load the cucumbers, mint leaves, syrup, and lemon juice along with 3 to 5 tablespoons of cannabis tincture into a blender.
  7. Blend the ingredients together with a low setting first before putting it on high. Puree until smooth.
  8. Strain the mix into a pitcher then add water. Feel free to add more lemonade with syrup or spike up the drink even more with a few drops of liquid marijuana.
