By Yewande Komolafe



I first sampled this drink on one of the hottest days of the summer.


My parents were visiting me for the first time since I had moved to New York City, and I had their ten-hour stay all planned out with as many food stops as I could fit in.


One of our stops in Brooklyn was Pies 'n' Thighs, a restaurant where I worked part-time in the pastry kitchen.


We sat down, desperately trying to cool off, and when our drink orders arrived, one of them was this frosty, palate-cleansing cucumber cooler.


Making the pale green drink at home couldn't be easier: peeled cucumbers whiz in a blender with water and fresh ginger, and the resulting purée is strained through cheesecloth and rounded out with a touch of lime juice.


It's the perfect non-alcoholic thirst-quencher for these hot July days.
