Stay Cool with the Cucumber Lime Mocktail

Take one sip of this Cucumber Lime Mocktail, and you’ll be cool as a cucumber.

Cucumbers–the September Harvest of the Month–have an inside temp that is 20 degrees cooler than the surrounding room, leading to the popular phrase.

In addition to being cooling, this veggie’s flavors make it a perfect compliment to this refreshingly delicious drink–ideal for those hot summer days or anytime you need a break.
