Honey-Cucumber Lemonade: The Perfect Summertime Drink

Honey Cucumber Lemonade

If you’ve been following along, you know that I’ve been obsessed with lemonade ever since our babymoon to Hawaii! Not to mention that nothing says “summer” like a chilled glass of lemonade (especially when temperatures exceed 100 degrees here in Phoenix)!

Honey Cucumber Lemonade

I’ve been playing around with various lemonade recipes – doing some research and LOTS of trial and error. I’ve finally mastered a recipe that combines some of my all-time favorite flavors: honey, cucumber, and of course – lemon!

The honey-infusion in this recipe makes for the perfect pairing of sweet and tart that’s SO refreshing!

I hope this honey-cucumber lemonade helps to liven up your summer!

  3. Add the juice/sugar mixture to 4 cups of water and mix well. (Add more water if you like your lemonade less tart).
