Order Up: Lu's Limeade

The Ultimate Summer Thirst-Quencher

I would write a whole cutesy spiel on how this garden-fresh concoction is the best thing since sliced bread, but I think the photographs speak for themselves. Credits to L'ren (Lauren Marshall) for the entire post excluding this blurb. L'ren, you rock.

Makes 2-3 drinks.


  • 1 box of strawberries
  • 2 small cucumbers
  • 3 limes
  • 1.5 cups of water
  • 1 cup of ice
  • Cane sugar


  • Squeeze the juice from each lime into a large bowl.
  • Add water to bowl (1.5 cups).
  • Peel and slice both cucumbers and add to bowl.
  • Mash strawberries and add to bowl.
  • Add ice (1 cup).
  • Mix it all togetha
  • Finally, add some cane sugar (to your liking). You can either make it sweet or sour but it's refreshing and delish nonetheless. (Also, if the taste is too strong just add water).
  • Pour into a tall glass and let your taste buds do their thang.

Cucumbers fresh from L'ren's own garden.
