Cucumber Lemonade with Toasted Coriander
This is a simple, refreshing take on lemonade that should bring back some ecto-cooler nostalgia.
- 2 Cucumbers, preferably long English type
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 lemon
- pinch finely-ground toasted coriander
Wash cucumbers and roughly chop. Place in blender with water, sugar, and lemon juice and puree. Strain through a lame wire mesh then again through a finer mesh or cheesecloth or whatever the hell you want. Test for sweetness/acidity and add more sugar or lemon juice as desired. Garnish with FINELY GROUND toasted coriander. The first try was with my ghetto-crushed stuff and it was too gritty.
