Cucumber Agua Fresca


  • 2L water (aka 8 cups water)
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 limes


  1. In a large pitcher add cold water and the sugar. Mix and let sit to dissolve
  2. peel a large cucumber (I leave a little skin on but that is optional)
  3. cut the cucumber in half and cube both parts
  4. save half the cucumber to blend and half to add to the agua fresca
  5. add half of the cucumber and add some water from the pitcher (about 1/2 cup-1 cup)
  6. add the blended mixture into the pitcher and stir
  7. juice your limes (my limes made about 1/2 cup of juice)
  8. Add the lime juice to the pitcher, stir and you’re done
