Coconut Cucumber Lemonade Mocktail

Suddenly I realized that I can actually experiment a lot more in my kitchen.Thanks to all the contests announced at IFBM. Since the last five days I have been experimenting with several things and I found out the hidden talent in me. Today just by simple observation I found that I can make a great drink with tender coconut.



 Everyday after lunch, in my office I go and drink tender coconut water. Today there were some guys who were drinking tender coconut water and they ordered it with a dash of lemon. This was something I saw for the first time. I realized that we can do a lot of things with tender coconut. Immediately after reaching home, I thought of experimenting and I mixed, cucumber juice with tender coconut water along with lemon juice. At first I was wondering what the taste would be like. I just sipped it and again and just loved it.The outcome was actually amazing.

This goes as my fourth entry for the Urbandazzle- Indian Food Bloggers Meet Monsoon/ Summer Cocktail (or Mocktail) Contest. I would love to serve this in Champagne Flute Glass which would make this drink look even more beautiful.
