Strawberry Cucumber Refresher

The weather is turning warmer theses days.  It is getting to the place where a nice cool drink is required. Today, I made a blender full of a delicious beverage that uses fresh strawberries, half of an English cucumber, sugar to taste, ice, and some Red Zinger Tea.  This beverage hit the spot while I was working in the garden.  So good, cool, and refreshing.

To begin making this beverage brew your tea and let it cool.  Once the tea has cooled, hull and quarter some fresh strawberries until you have 2 cups.  Next peel half of an English cucumber and cut into chunks. Place the tea, strawberries, and cucumber chunks into a blender.  Add some sugar  and 2 cups of ice.  Blend until smooth.  Taste and add more sugar if necessary.

Serve immediately.
