“Delicious and Refreshing. My aunt makes a cucumber lemonade but I upped it by adding fresh mint during the puree process. You can add vodka if you want an adult beverage. You can also use fresh lemons (making fresh lemonade with the lemon juice, sugar and water). For simplicity I'm submitting this using already made lemonade. Diabetic Friendly: use fresh squeezed lemon juice and use Truvia or Stevia to sweeten.”
1 Large Pitcher
