We’ve been eating burgers, hot dogs, and grilled chicken and salads, so no posts. Sorry. Summer!! This is the kind of thing I have been making. Throw some things in the blender, strain it, and drink with ice cubes.

Cucumber agua fresca
another fun thing to add would be some watermelon in here, but I was too lazy to cut some up. 

1 cucumber, cut into pieces
a few big sprigs of mint
3 T sugar
6 cups of cold water

Combine the cucumber, mint, sugar, and half the water in the blender. Blend until there aren’t any big pieces left, then strain into a pitcher. Stir in the rest of the water. Maybe add some gin or vodka to your own glass, maybe not. Serve cold, with ice and mint sprigs.
