      Thankyou very much. You will find different variations of the drink. I think it's just personal preference to add lime :-)

      This looks really good. My chiropractor has this kind of drink in his office for his patients. I love it but I don’t think he has lime in it. We have lots of cucumbers in our garden this year. 90% humidy today so it's hot. Voted up and the drink is also so pretty.

      Thankyou. It has been quite the opposite here in England. We have had rain and floods all summer. So please send some of your hot summer our way :-)

      Have never heard or thought of putting cucumber slices in a drink, but it does sound refreshing. I'll try this drink this week as we're having such a hot and humid summer.
