Just relax, that's what I often hear from my family.You need to relax, they say. Which I guess means I'm really booked up and busy and need to slow down a lot. I don't usually take much time for myself other than to work out on all, well, most days. But when I think of "relax," I need a swing seat, a book, and a jar of something tasty. Not being a drinker, I'm looking for ways to spice up the regular brew. This recipe is my idea of relaxation.
as a partner withcabbageand her #makeyourmove campaign, I've focused on finding ways to be more out with my family, finding time for myself without all our electronics, and now finding that happy place to relax, even if it's only for 15 minutes.
Fresh cucumbers and fresh mint leaves from my garden and some time in the fridge herald this flavorful drink.
I never buy sodas or drinks from a coffee shop simply because none of them are sugar free except for the coffee I order. I prefer to live without sugar and have been for 11 years. It's about being kind to myself and knowing that I'm better off without refined sugar in my life.
is FormosaKrugIt's from Kohl's Bobby Flay Collection. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and knew I would do something special just to wear it. This is perfect for outdoor parties as it's easy to fill and makes a large batch for a crowd. You can do this in advance and just relax until your guests arrive, then your job is done! Everyone can help themselves, just skip a fewBagsand limes.
Get your own jar of delights and kick back for at least 15 minutes for a day of kicking back with your feet up, a porch swing is not required but recommended. 🙂
That's my plan today and for the next few days because we all work hard and sometimes this life isn't easy. We all deserve some time to “relax”.

This was too slimy for me no matter how much sweetener I added, and not enough mint. I think the problem is that I used lemon juice instead of freshly squeezed lemon (because it's significantly cheaper and easier) and the flavor is stronger. I usually use agave nectar as a matcha tea sweetener, but this time I had to use a ton of Splenda just to mask the flavor as well as I did. If you're making this with lemon juice instead of freshly squeezed lemons, I would reduce the recipe to 3/4 cup or even less. I wish there was a side note, although I still appreciate having a guide to work with!
I made and followed the recipe.
I wrote down the changes I would make.
It wasn't minty enough for me, so I'd add more and soak it separately from the pickles. He would then squeeze the mint leaves for maximum flavor.
I squeezed the cucs a bit at the end because they held a lot of water, I'm not sure if that matters but I definitely wouldn't squeeze them. I bought the Sweetleaf Lemon sweetener and still found it too acidic for me (2 cups of lemon juice...10 limes), so I added stevia.
This was very expensive. It cost me about $18.00 before sweeteners, which I didn't have. Recipe yields exactly one gallon. I am very satisfied with the result. I already drink, but I'm waiting for my personal changes. Thank you for putting this recipe together. I am estimating it at around $2.25 for 16 ounces. versus $2.50 for Starbucks. Despite being a price wash, it already has the sweeteners in it. If you remove the matcha tea powder, it reduces the cost by $5.00. Some things to keep in mind are sugar 70 calories, 14g. for 16 ounces or stevia, the convenience of a packet mix, or this recipe which, once you get your personal taste, I think will be a lot tastier than the Starbucks packet. I hope this information was helpful.
I really want to try this, but is there a matcha substitute that I can use? I can't drink green tea because it gives me A LOT of stomach upset.

You can skip it and use regular tea if green bothers you. It doesn't turn green, but it still tastes good.
You may have saved my sanity. CLRs are my favorite drink at Starbucks, but I'm on keto now, so I can't eat carbs/sugar. This gets perfect with some Torani Sugar Free Raspberry Syrup Pumps!
Yes that makes me happy!
I did this over the weekend. I started by doubling the amount of cukes/mint/water to make a larger batch but ended up using only 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice (I grossly underestimated the number of lemons I would need for 2 cups! ). After letting the water steep for about 36 hours, I ended up with about 3 cups of mint pickle water. Since I couldn't get enough to double it, I simply added all of the infused water to 4 cups of matcha water, only about 3/4 cup of lemon juice (my personal preference, less acidic, 2 cups would have made plenty of lemon too for me) and used SF Torani Raspberry Syrup and a few dashes of liquid Stevia to match the taste I'm used to and it's liquid PERFECTION. The color is a little different, but who cares what it looks like?
Unbelievable! I'm glad you like it and thanks for coming back to share your edits!

Our moment of relaxation is watching a movie and enjoying an evening of pizza together! I wouldn't mind adding this drink!
I love these glasses and this vase! Now you think I need a porch swing, and I would definitely drink that while swinging.

There's something so refreshing about the tart, sweet, fresh taste of lemon...it really is the best when I'm thirsty. Great to see a copycat Starbucks recipe. Thanks!

This vase is beautiful! I'm totally adding this to my "Bucket List". Plus, this is the perfect refreshing drink for those hot late summer days!

Nice pitcher! I never order drinks either. I'd rather have my sugar in dessert form, thanks. 😉
Hello... Can you use the Persian cukes instead of the English ones? Does this drink have a real mint flavor or is it boring? Thanks in advance for your help.
I'm sure you could. NOT too minty, you can always add less mint, then taste and adjust.
