PF Chang’s Strawberry Cucumber Limeade

PF Chang’s Strawberry Cucumber Limeade

If you are looking for a fun, summer drink, you should try PF Chang’s Strawberry Cucumber Limeade!  When our server suggested it, it does not sound like a good combination, but I thought why not try something new! The tangy and sweet combination of the flavors was a refreshing surprise. The $3.95 price was a bit shocking, but thank goodness we were using a gift card! Our fabulous server gave us the recipe so I tried it at home and I quickly tried mixing it up. It turned out a bit too tart, but for a first try it wasn’t bad. I let it sit for a few minutes and to let the flavors combine better…oh.my.yum!!

 

PF Chang's Strawberry Cucumber Limeade

Ingredients

Approx 2 whole strawberries

Ramekin full julienne cucumber

1.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice (I use 1/2 a lime)

1.5 oz pure cane sugar ( I use 2-3 packets of Splenda)

1.5 oz water (I add 4 oz and then more to taste)

Directions

In pint glass muddle strawberries and julienne cucumber

Add approx 4 ice cubes

Add mixers (lime juice/sugar/water)

Cap glass and shake vigorously for 10 seconds

Update: I still make this drink every summer when I have fresh strawberries, cucumbers, and limes and it has been one of my most popular pins on Pinterest. I have added links to some of the items that are lesser known such as ramekin and a muddler. Is a ramekin important? Not really, this recipe was made for a bartender so I’m sure it is used to give an amount reference so you can click on the link if you need a reference point. The muddler, however, is a must. I used to just squash the ingredients, but this year I tried a muddler and found it very valuable. Take a look through your kitchen drawers, you may have a spoon with a roundish end. 🙂

  2. Is the 1.5oz of sugar by weight or by volume?

  3. What is the Ramekin full julienne cucumber?

  4. I’m trying to make this for my wife. What does “add mixers” mean? Also, the drink she gets at PF Chang’s is more than 3 oz. I’m very confused by your recipe. Could you be so kind as to explain it?

    • Mixers is the rest of the ingredients. I copied the recipe word for word from the slip the server gave me it must be the term bartenders use.

      When I ordered this drink it was in a small glass so there was mot much to it. Have started serving a larger portion since last year? I make it at home now so I never order it.

      Feel free to add more water and juice to make a larger drink, but then you will want to add more sweetener. I usually double the recipe. Hope that helps!

      • There is a LOT of ice in the glass, so there’s a good chance there’s only 3oz of actual liquid.

        Thanks for posting the recipe!
