As a foil for the spicy food of Banda Aceh they have the ultimate refreshing combination: filling glasses with grated cucumber and ice, then topping up with fresh limeade. It’s even better when everything is blitzed together.
Put the cucumber in a high-speed blender with the lime juice, sugar and a handful of ice. Blend to a slush and taste for sweetness (remembering it will be diluted). Transfer to a jug with more ice and top up with a little sparkling water. Serve at once.
