Homemade cucumber mint soda

OK........ I tried this DRY brand soda the other day, and it was cucumber flavored.  I was skeptical at first but....

IT WAS DIVINE!

In other words...... I loved it.  I HAD to make some of my own.  I've been feeling a little down after spending this past weekend in Idaho, with really beautiful sunshine, and coming home to gray Seattle skies.  The temperature is pretty grand around here, but man, I NEED that sunshine!  I actually felt a raindrop while walking Tootsie Pop.  This summery soda was my attempt to cheer myself up. 







This was so easy and delightful.

Just muddle about 5 or 6 thick slices of cucumber, a few torn mint leaves, and about a teaspoon of sugar in a 12oz glass.  Fill with soda water and garnish with cucumber and mint.  That's it!  It is super super pulpy, so I actually ended up straining it after taking this pic.  SO tasty though.....

Well........ it was a peek into the summer taste I was craving.  Fingers crossed that we get some sun rays this weekend.

Ciao friends!
