This is from the Flat Belly Diet. It is delicious. The cucumber and lemon are natural diurectics. The ginger and spearmint help relieve bloating. I just really like all these flavors together. I use purified water. Drink this throughout the day. Cook time is the time it is refrigerated overnight.

For the record, neither cucumber nor lemon has any diuretic effect. Ginger is good for gas and bloating, though.

Winner! Outstanding combination of flavors that really does add a nice little sass to your daily water intake! I made as written and in the morning declared that I would not change a thing. I will be adding this to my best of 2012 book and making often. Thanks for the post.

This was great in the hot summer to quench my thirst and different than just plain water. Thank you!
