1 part cucumber water

1 part fresh-squeezed lime juice

For making the cucumber water:

Peel and slice one cucumber and add 20 ounces of filtered water.  Blend well and place the cucumber water in your refrigerator for 2 hours.  Strain the water through a fine sieve over a pitcher to remove the pulp and you are ready to make your cocktails.
