Okay, so it’s not food per se, but it’s on the top of my list of refreshing treats lately, so I thought I’d share my most recent obsession with you: cucumber-lemon-mint water! It’s a mouthful, I know (no pun intented). But seriously, this stuff is a constant in my fridge these days and I think it’s only going to get better when summer rolls around. It’s so refreshing I just want to give it to everyone! And I won’t lie, it feels kind of glamorous to drink. It’s like accessorizing your beverage. But I digress.
It’s beyond simple, so here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 lemon
- handful of fresh mint
Slice the cucumber and quarter the lemon. Remove long stems from the mint. Toss all of it into the pitcher; I like to give the lemon a squeeze and roll the mint in my hands a bit before tossing them in so the flavors are really happenin’. Fill the pitcher with water and refrigerate.
Pour yourself a long, tall glass and enjoy! xoxo
