PF Chang’s Strawberry Cucumber Limeade

If you are looking for a fun, summer drink, you should try PF Chang’s Strawberry Cucumber Limeade! This does not sound like a good combination, but I was pleasantly surprised by the drink! I was also surprised by the $3.95 price. Thank goodness we were using a gift card! The fabulous server gave us the recipe so I tried it at home. It turned out a bit too tart, but for a first try it wasn’t bad. {Update: I let it sit for a few minutes and to let the flavors combine better…oh.my.yum!!}

1.5 oz pure cane sugar

  1. I haven’t heard of that type of combination. It seems interesting. I will try this in my home. Thank you for sharing.

  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!
