Mr. Q. Cumber


Some WU-vie sample this and tell me what it tastes like, please. I myself am scared to try.

IIRC, cucumbers contain the highest water content of all fruits & veggies so, if I follow that logic, add in the name, and know that 'cucumber water' has been around for some decades I'm going to guess a CUCUMBER!

How'd I do?

Expat--you achieved the dominant flavor notes, but forget to add in effervescence and any other flavorings the makers might have added!

Price: $16.20 ($0.19 / ounce) + $14.84 shipping for a dozen bottles.
At those prices, if I want cucumber water that badly, I'll eat a cucumber, or at least make my own cucumber water. That way, I can make a down payment on a SodaStream to make it sparkling cucumber water.

During the summer, I often add a slice of cucumber to my water. It's a really refreshing taste.

I would also recommend Hendricks cucumber-infused gin.

If it's anything like the cucumber drink I had in Mexico it will taste almost like watermelon .

Probably tastes similar to Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray celeray-flavored soft drink.

If I want cucumber flavor I think I would try this first:

"Square One Cucumber

Square One Cucumber (cucumber flavored organic vodka) is a blend of our original Square One Organic Vodka and the delicate essence of organic cucumber. The addition of cucumber lends a crisp, refreshing note to both simple cocktails and more complex culinary-style cocktails"

For a few years, my family had the Thanksgiving tradition of buying the holiday-themed Jones sodas, and seeing who could drink the most. Sodas with flavors like turkey with gravy or mashed potatoes or green bean casserole.

They were disgusting. The sodas, not my family.

Gross! I think not.

Its quite good. Tastes melonesque, not excessively sweet, and is especially refreshing in hot weather.

Patti, have you met Patty? Oh, God, this is going to get confusing! :blank:

I'll stand on my bonafides there honey.

They carry it at Galco's Soda Shop in LA. They have a lot of... different... sodas there. Many good, and may just too "interesting" for me. I've tried Kickapoo Joy Juice, Rose Lemonade, Fukola Cola, Manhattan Special Espresso Coffee, Waialua Pineapple, Americana Huckleberry, Apple-Beer, Moxie, Hotlips Boysenberry, Red Ribbon Almond Cream, etc.

They have the biggest variety I've ever seen. You should check it out (worth swinging by if you're around Pasadena/Al Hambra. I once drove up from San Diego to bring back a few crates for a party.

I forgot to mention. I tried Mr. Q and I really like it!

Bryan--many thanks for the first-hand feedback! Maybe I will sample some this summer--with lots of gin!
