I just loveeee flavored water. I don’t mean the sugary store bought flavored waters, but deliciously fresh spa water. Water that has fresh cut strawberries soaking in ice cold water or sliced oranges that have been bathing in a batch of ice cold water are two of my personal favorites; however my all time favorite is without a doubt cucumber water. I know it sounds less than appealing, but I turned cucumber water haters into lovers after they tried a glass! It is so refreshing and thirst quenching. This cucumber citrus spa water makes the perfect drink for a hot day!
Total Ingredients Cost: $3.00
- 2 cucumbers
- 1 lemon
- Fresh mint – 1 tbs sliced into strips
- Cutting board
- Long spoon to mix
Wash the fruit, vegetables, and herbs. Slice the cucumbers and lemons into thin slices. Cut the fresh mint into thin strips to help infuse the mint into the water. Measure 1 tbs of mint.
Fill pitcher with prepared ingredients. Add water.
Let sit in refrigerator for 8 – 24 hours. The longer you wait, the stronger the flavors will be. Be careful not to leave the fresh ingredients in the water for more than 24hours because they will eventually turn soggy.
Once you are ready to enjoy your refreshing drink, remove all fresh ingredients and add ice in their place. Be aware the ice will eventually melt and lessen the intensity of the cucumber, lemon, and mint.
Pour yourself a tall glass of refreshing spa water and cheers!
