A fantastic drink to enjoy this summer. Really refreshing!
- 1 cup still water
- 20 slices of cucumber
- 2 sticks of lemongrass
- 5-6 cups of sparkling water (I use my fabulous SodaStream for this)
- Lemongrass/cucumber and ice to serve
Using a rolling pin or something similar, bash the lemongrass on a board to break it up which releases the flavour then place it into a jug with the 1 cup of water. You may need to chop it into a few pieces so it is completely submerged in the water.
Add the cucumber slices to the water and lemongrass and leave in the fridge for an hour or two so the flavours infuse into the water.
Remove the lemongrass from the chilled water and place the flavoured water with the cucumber slices (the ones which still look nice) into a clean jug. Top this up with sparkling water and then pour into individual glasses.
