My husband started a garden at his grandmother’s house. I didn’t really understand why initially but now I get it. He finds a certain joy in coming home with bags full of vegetables that he has planted. The garden has all types of vegetables and fruit that include tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, cucumbers, onions, cantaloupe, green beans, okra, sweet potatoes, two kinds of watermelon, and corn. Everyone has worked in the garden…except me. Even my husband’s 96 year old grandma got out there and pruned some weeds. Maybe one day I will make it out there to help out…but this heat keeps telling me to stay cool on the inside.

One day, as I sat in the A.C. looking out the window, smiling at the beautiful sunshine, my hubby came home and brought me these beauties:

Cucumbers! A lot…and I mean a lot of cucumbers. I had no clue what to do with them all. So I did what any logical food blogger would do, I asked The Facebook. I got many responses and ample advice. Most people suggested I make pickles with these cucumbers, which I did. However, I didn’t want to eat way too many pickles and get pickle wasted.

My cousin, Vern, suggested a cucumber ginger drink and even provided a recipe. Her recipe was simple, quick, and easy. She even suggested that I could add a splash of rum if I wanted. Feel free to add a splash to yours as well.

This recipe is pretty quick and easy to make. The ginger gives it a unique flavor and the lime cuts down on the strong flavors of the ginger providing a good balance. Feel free to omit the rum as I did in this video. If you do add rum, make sure it is only a dash as the rum can be overpowering.

Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Special thanks and shoutout to everyone that gave advice on what I should do with those cucumbers. I had fun trying out different recipes and I am looking forward to sharing more in the future. Enjoy 🙂

Nice hubby! I want a garden so bad but I'm kinda lazy to garden plus I suck at it too! Plus it's too hot and I hate bugs. Maybe I'll start someday. My grandmother use to have a garden full of all types of fruits and vegetables and tons of cucumbers. I love cucumbers because of her. Your drink sounds so good!

Thanks April! This is his first year growing them. If I could grow cucumbers indoors I would, lol.
