Lime (Key Lime if possible)

Cucumber

Mint

Sparkling Water

Raw Sugar

Ice

Wash and cut cucumber into thin slices and set aside. Pull mint leaves off of the stems. Cut limes into eight wedges (cut in half; then cut each half into 4 equal wedges.)

Place 1-2 lime wedges and 4-5 mint leaves in a cup. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar and muddle ingredients with a muddler (if you don't have a muddler, use the rounded handle side of a large kitchen utensil or the backside of a wooden spoon.)

Add ice on top of muddled mixture, then pour sparkling water to fill. Stir and garnish with cucumber slices to taste.

Enjoy!
