Cucumber Infused Water

With hot weather on its way, consider making your own “smart water!”

Few things are more delicious, refreshing… and economical…than an infused water made with either fruits or vegetables, just like in your spa. My personal favorite is cucumber. Citrus, fennel, mint, or basil and blackberry are also contenders.

Here is my recipe for cucumber infused water:

One cucumber, washed
A lemon
One pitcher of filtered water

Slice the cucumber thinly with a very sharp knife. Add to the water with a squeeze of lemon if you like. Cover and let sit for a few hours.

Serve chilled with a slice of cucumber as a garnish.

Ahhhh….
