peeled, seeds removed, chopped
limes, fresh lime juice
dates, pits removed
fresh mint leaves
peel cucumbers, slice lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a spoon. Chop cucumbers into 1" chunks.
Place cucumbers, dates, and freshly squeezed lime juice (if some lime flesh gets in thats good too) in a blender and process until well blended.
Add the mint and water to the blender and blend until smooth.
Gather a large glass jug and a mesh strainer that will sit inside the jug.
Pour the contents of the blender into the strainer about 2-4 cups at a time. Swirl with a spoon to help the liquid to move through.
Continue to do this until all the liquid is in the jug and you will be left with wet pulp in the strainer. Push the pulp with the back of the spoon to get our as much liquid as possible.
Chill the fresca jug in the fridge for about an hour before serving. Fill glasses with ice, pour fresca overtop and garnish with mint leaves or a slice of cucumber as desired.
This drink is served best cold. It keeps in the fridge well for 1-2 days.
