What’s more refreshing than drinking your veggies? Ever since the greenmarket started overflowing with spring vegetables and fruit, I’ve been hankering for more fresh juices. Rhubarb lemonade! Spinach beet juice! Celery agua fresca! (Just kidding on that last one…maybe.) And now, cucumber mint tonic.
Cucumber and mint work together as seamlessly avocado and lime, but here’s the kicker: add in a hearty amount of apple cider vinegar. Yes, the stuff you use to attract houseflies and soothe sunburns. Shockingly, when mixed with cukes and mint the result is sweet, rejuvenating, and tangy in the best way. I found out this fun food fact thanks to The New Persian Kitchen on Genius Recipes.
