Drink Recipe: Rosemary-Infused Cucumber Lemonade

I have to be honest, I really enjoy the flavor of cucumber in my beverages. Here's another one...

Rosemary-Infused Cucumber Lemonade

The combination of rosemary, cucumbers and lemons gives a refreshing twist to traditional lemonade. A delicious non-alcoholic summer treat with only 71 calories per serving! (And if you don’t like rosemary, just leave it out but give it a try, it’s surprisingly refreshing!)

• 3 large cucumbers
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
• 1 cup water
• 1/2 cup lemon juice
• 3 tablespoons agave syrup

Cut 12 thin slices of cucumber for garnish. 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. Press on the solids to extract all the juice. Add water, lemon juice and agave syrup to the cucumber juice; stir until the agave is dissolved. Divide among 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with cucumber slices and rosemary sprigs.
