Cucumber Mojitos

4 Cups Water

2 Large Cucumbers, peeled and coarsely chopped

30 Mint Leaves

3/4 Cups Agave Syrup

1/2 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice

2 Cups Sierra Mist Soda

1. Combine water, cucumber, mint, agave and lime juice in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Strain through a sieve; discard solids.

2. Refrigerate cucumber mixture. Before serving, stir well. Serve over ice with soda (50/50). Makes 12 mocktails.

Variations:

* You can add rum to make alcoholic cocktails

* You can substitute honey or natural sugar for agave syrup

* You can add soda to the cucumber mixture if you're serving a crowd immediately

* Sparkling water, Sprite or other type of lemon-lime sode can be substituted for Sierra Mist

* You can use prepared lime juice (but I don't recommend it)

* We used the mint growing right out of our garden--you can use more, if you'd like

Enjoy!
