Oxymel with Cucumber increases your heat tolerance and prevents you from fatigue.

Oxymel with cucumber is one of the oldest Iranian drinks, served especially in summers, which you can easily make in your home. Some make oxymel with honey, some with sugar, you can also add mint to it.


One and 1/3 cup honey

One cup water

Two-third cup white vinegar

A small bunch of washed fresh mint

Two small cucumbers washed, peeled, and shredded Lime rind

To make it, first, combine sugar and water in a pot and put it on medium heat. Stir it until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat and let it gently boil for 10-15 minutes.

Add vinegar and simmer it until it thickens which may take about 30 minutes. Adjust the level of sweetness and sourness of the sherbet.

You can add a few fresh mint leaves in the end.
