    Cucumber, lime and mint agua fresca

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes plus chilling
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 10 minutes plus chilling

    Serves: 4 (or 8 as a mixer)

    Ingredients

    2 large cucumbers, roughly chopped
    8 limes, juice
    small handful mint
    120g caster sugar

    TO SERVE
    1 lime, sliced
    ¼ cucumber, sliced
    4 mint sprigs, leaves picked

    Method

    1. Whizz together the cucumbers, lime juice, mint, sugar and 250ml cool water in a blender, until smooth. Pour through a fine sieve, lightly pushing it through with a spatula to release as much liquid as possible. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours, until needed. Fill a medium-sized glass jug with ice cubes, lime slices, cucumber slices and mint leaves. Stir the sieved liquid well and pour into the jug to serve
