Summer Cooler: Cucumber Punch

With summer kicking off today, we can’t have enough refreshing hot-weather drinks on hand. Cucumbers are so cool and fresh that we had to bookmark this simple recipe when we read it.

This cucumber punch mixes fresh cucumbers with lemonade, citrus soda, and ginger ale. It sounds sweet, fizzy, cool, and totally refreshing. It is also a great non-alcoholic alternative to those cucumber gimlets we recently recommended.
