Cucumber Lemonade Mocktail

As the summer season heats up, I opt, more often than not, for a non-alcoholic summer refresher.

Here is one of my favorites but try getting the cucumber slice to stick in the middle of the glass is another trick.

Bon Appetit!

Cucumber Lemonade Mocktail

1 paper-thin, lengthwise slice of European cucumber, for garnish
1/4 teaspoon finely chopped dill, plus 1 dill sprig, for garnish
1 tablespoon agave syrup
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh cucumber juice
1/4 cup chilled club soda

Press the cucumber slice against the inside of a chilled highball glass and add ice.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the chopped dill, agave syrup, lemon and lime juices and 1 tablespoon of water until the syrup is dissolved. A
dd ice, then add the cucumber juice and shake well.
Strain into the prepared glass and stir in the club soda.
Garnish with the dill sprig.
