I made this cucumber and rosewater drink a couple of days ago after a nostalgic day out at London Bridge.
This is such a refreshing and fragrant drink, even better chilled in the fridge for an hour or so.
For those adventurous souls on these beautiful summer days, a splash of vodka will happily dance into the evening with you 😉.
1/2 a large cucumber
3 tbls rosewater
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 pint cold water
Peel and wash the cucumber.
Using a grator, grate the cucumber.
Place the grated cucumber in a tall jug, enough to fill slightly more than 1 pint of water. Alternatively you could use a blender and blitz the cucumber into a fine paste, but the traditional way that I know and have been used to is the grated version.
Dilute the sugar into the water so that no sugar granes are left undiluted.
Add the rosewater and give it a good stir.
Pour into the jug and stir well with the cucumber.
Place in the fridge to chill or drink straight away with ice. Enjoy 😃
If you’re not a fan of pieces of cucumber in your drink then let the drink chill and pickup the essence of the cucumber.
Once ready to serve use a tea strainer to separate the cucumber from the water and serve.
