DIY Starbucks Cool Lime Refresher

Hello! For the month of June, I thought it would be fun to do a little weekend series sharing a DIY Starbucks recipe every weekend! To kick things off, I'm sharing one of my favorites for Summer, the Cool Lime Refresher. This is the perfect summer drink with the sweet tangy lime, cucumber and hint of mint! These drinks won't taste exact, since I'm not using any syrups or anything, but I must say they are very good!

 All you will need is:
The juice of 1 lime
1 mini cucumber (about 1/2 cup) peeled and chopped
4-6 finely chopped fresh mint leaves
Water (about 1/3 cup)
Lemonade (around 1 cup)
Sugar (optional)

This recipe serves 1!
It's best to start this drink the night before, or at least 1-2 hours before (overnight is best). Start by adding your cucumber, mint and water into an airtight container and refrigerate.

 Squeeze the juice of 1 lime (leave some slices for display) in a cup.

 Next, strain your cucumber mixture and fill to the first line of a Starbucks cup. It's about 1/3 cup.

Fill the rest up with your lemonade, add ice and your lime slices & enjoy!

 I hope you try this one out! :)
