I was at a luncheon the other day and my friend Marisue had this wonderful water for us to drink! She said she first found out about this cool drink at a day spa. The pitcher of water looks beautiful with the lemon and cucumber and the taste is divine! It's so easy and it really does add refreshing elements to your water!
- Place all the ingredients into a pitcher and serve!
- For a stronger taste, let the water sit in your refrigerator for an hour prior to serving.
I didn't think I'd like this but I do! I will definitely be making this again. Very refreshing.
I also first tried this recipe at a day spa...minus the lemons. The longer the cucumbers sit in water, the better, more flavorful the water becomes. Do not use a plastic jar; it won't work. I bought a glass sun tea cooler glass jar from Walmart which has a spout on the bottom of the jar. I sliced the cucumbers, poured filtered water on top and put it in the fridge for several days. Whenever I drink a cup of cucumber water, I put a cup of filtered water back into the jar. I think the lemon, lime, or orange addition will be tasty too but I haven't tried it, yet. The biggest key to success is using a glass jar and letting it sit for days. ENJOY!
Cucumber & watermelon are in the same family. So when I cut watermelon up I do this same thing with the rinds in place of the cucumber. Delish!
