“Trust is not a passive state of mind. It is a vigorous act of the soul by which we choose to lay hold on the promises of God and cling to them despite the adversity that at times seeks to overwhelms us.”

I'm sharing from David Lebovitz: Cucumber Mint Cooler
For possibly the first time ever a blog
post arrived in our in-box, we made the recipe, and I'm sharing it here with you, all on the very same
day~ Thank you David Lebovitz! Get the Cucumber Mint Cooler
Story& Recipe HERE!
Zest from 1 med Organic Orange from Azure & 2 ½ oz Organic Lime
Juice (home-squeezed) Because: we had no limes- only fresh
oranges and previously squeezed lime juice in the freezer.
of salt: I used the 'pinch' spoon- yes, I really did! =)
we tried 2 ways (we forgot the ice):
oz each “base” & water- good, but a bit harsh.
oz each “base” & water, and 1 oz Tequila- it was better, the
alcohol smoothed it a bit.
Quite minty- it's rather like drinking a roll of Mentos, lol!
liked the citrus/mint/sugar balance, but felt it could use more
cucumber- another time, we'd add a 4th or 5th
note: We think that it would be better as a dinner-party-drink...(with or without alcohol, depending on the guest list)
possibly even turned into a FROZEN DRINK, served in smaller
servings, and maybe up the alcohol ratio.
