Sparkling Cucumber Limeade

Need a drink to quench your thirst, but want something a little more exciting than water?

This non-alcoholic lime and mint drink might seem like it would taste like a mojito, but  by adding this vegetable it adds a whole new layer to the taste, of what I can only describe as ‘freshness’.

Try for yourself how refreshing this drink really is on a hot sunny day…
