Reviews for Cucumber Punch
"I will not make this again. Too many ingredients for an average drink..."
"Served this at a party and everyone loved it!"
"Have made it several times already. Anyone who loves pickles will certainly love this drink!"
"suggestion from magazine--Garnish you pitcher or each glass with citrus rind curls (run a zester over lemons, grapefruits, or limes) in addition to, or in place of cucumber slices.Use citrus ice cubes, prepared ahead of time, for an extra touch of color. Simply add citrus rind curls or small citrus wedges to ice-cube trays filled with water and freeze.Rub glass rims with a lime wedge; dip the rims into granulated, super-fine or coarse sugar. For an extra pop of color, use colored sugar."
