Cucumber Mint Lemonade

This Cucumber Mint Lemonade is such a refreshing blend of some of my favorite summer flavors. It’s mostly lemon, with a hint of cucumber and fresh mint, and it’s the perfect drink for a hot summer day. To make this drink super simple, I use frozen lemonade concentrate, but if you’re feeling really industrious, you could certainly make your lemonade from scratch. Either way, this is a fun and delicious twist on a classic summer drink!
