Turn fresh rosemary, cucumbers and lemons into grown-up lemonade that will keep you cool on a hot day.

Ingredients
Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes
  • large cucumbers

    chopped fresh rosemary, plus 4 sprigs for garnish

    water
  • 1/2 cup
    lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons
    agave syrup, (see Note)
Instructions

  2. Peel and chop the rest of the cucumber; transfer to a food processor, add rosemary and puree. Pour the puree through a fine-mesh strainer set over a medium bowl or large measuring cup.
