Cucumber and Mint Citrus Water

We went to a wedding a few months back and prior to the ceremony they had light appetizers and wine. And an incredibly refreshing cucumber water. I drank almost as much of that water as I did wine! Ever since then I've wanted to make some for myself at the house. I drink A TON of water and thought this would be a good way to mix it up a little. So, a couple weeks ago I finally made a jug of cucumber water. Not only did I love it, but so did everyone else in the house. I've made it several times since. And it not only tastes like a day at the spa it also works to detoxify your system- so it makes you feel good when you drink it too.

Cucumber and Mint Citrus Water

  • 1 cucumber sliced
  • 1 lime or lemon sliced
  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh mint

 Add all ingredients into a 2-qt jug or pitcher. Fill with water (I used water for my Pur tank but if you drink your tap water as is I'm sure it would be fine). Let sit in the fridge for several hours before drinking. Once you've drank all the water you can refill the jug reusing the cucumber and citrus a few times over, but toss it out after 2 or 3 days.
