Cucumber cooler drink recipe | Henry Dimbleby

This might just be the most beautiful-looking drink in the world – perfect for a pure detox. The simple addition of cucumber brings a more refreshing taste, and a more satisfying way to rehydrate. At dinner parties put one jug on the table with these long, translucent strips of cucumber, and another jug floating with thin slices of lemon. It's so cheap, but it looks lovely.

Serves 4

1 cucumber
1½ litres of cold water
1 lime

Peel the cucumber, discard the peel then, using the peeler, keep peeling the flesh of the cucumber into long ribbons, turning the cucumber as you go. Drop the pieces straight into your favourite jug. Keep making ribbons until you get to the seeds. Squeeze lime into the jug with the water and lots of ice.
