Hits the Spot: Cool Relief from the Summer Heat

By Debbie Schlussel
For those who missed out on yesterday’s 7-Eleven free Slurpee offering–or if you partook and want more liquid refreshment–here’s a cool recipe that you can easily do, from this week’s new issue of People magazine. I recommend not using so much sugar in your lemonade, so the flavors of the mint and cucumber aren’t overwhelmed by the sweetness. Since this recipe doesn’t give you the instructions for the lemonade part, click here for a classic basic lemonade recipe (I prefer to substitute two oranges for two of the lemons).
Refreshing, cool, and, ah, it hits the spot.

Cucumbers? In Lemonade? I don’t think so.

You can try using Stevia which is a natural sweetner and has no side effects. I use it in lemonade and no one is none the wiser.
