This Cucumber Punch is our family favorite, and bonus for me, it couldn't be easier to make! I got this recipe from a wonderful friend when her family lived here in Virginia. It really brings back fun memories of our time with them because I miss her so much! She is an amazing cook (among MANY other things) and several of my best recipes come from her. Light, refreshing, and a really unique combination of flavors that you are going to love. My kids request this often! It is the perfect holiday drink with it's green accents of cucumbers and limes. It will make your Christmas extra special.
1 (12 oz.) can frozen limeade concentrate
1 2-liter bottle lemon-lime soda
1 cucumber, sliced
1 lime, sliced (optional)
Combine the limeade and soda, stirring until limeade is dissolved. Top with cucumber slices. Serve with additional cucumber slices and lime wedges if desired.
*This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for parties. It looks beautiful in a punch bowl with the cucumbers floating on top. The above amount is perfect for a large pitcher.
Gather your ingredients. You will need a can of frozen limeade concentrate, and 2-liter bottle of lemon-lime soda, and a cucumber.
In a large pitcher, add a (12 oz.) can of frozen limeade concentrate. I let the can sit out on the counter for a few minutes so it's slushy when I pour it out.
Add the entire 2-liter bottle of lemon-lime soda. Stir until the limeade is dissolved.
Slice your cucumber. I think my kids may feel like this is a way they can check off vegetables, even though you don't actually eat these!
I love to serve this in my carafe (a gift from my best friend). Place the cucumber slices either in the pitcher you're making it in, or in the container you want to serve it in. This also looks beautiful in a punch bowl!
Pour the punch over the cucumbers. As it sits, the mild and fresh flavor of the cucumbers melds with the lemon-lime. It is AMAZING!
I think it is also so pretty!
You can serve it with additional cucumber slices and lime wedges if desired.
This special drink will make your holidays even brighter! Anyone that tries this instantly wants to know how to make it! So refreshing and delicious. Happy holidays!
