Is it necessary to peel the cucumber for the Cucumber Mint Delight?
Peeling the cucumber is recommended to achieve a smoother texture and to avoid any bitterness from the skin, but it is not strictly necessary. If you prefer to keep the skin on, make sure to wash the cucumber thoroughly to remove any pesticides and impurities.
Can I use bottled lemon juice instead of fresh lemon juice?
While fresh lemon juice is ideal for its fresher and more vibrant flavor, you can use bottled lemon juice as a convenient alternative. Use approximately 2 tablespoons of bottled lemon juice as a substitute for the juice of one fresh lemon.
