FYI a bartender pal has just whispered to me that if you want to freeze cucumber water/juice for ice cubes it is best to dilute it with an equal amount of water, 'freezes better, makes nicer cubes'.

Presumably because cucumber juice has stuff in it that lowers its freezing point
below 0C. Pure, undiluted juice would likely lead to slush rather than solid cubes.

Aha -- like watermelon purée/juice!
