This is almost too easy to post. But then again, it’s so easy, and quite refreshing, I hate not to share it with ya.
Last weekend I hosted a baby shower at our home and was looking for a simple beverage to offer in addition to the regular tea, coffee, and lemonade. Thankfully my good friend, Kristen from Dine and Dish suggested refreshing flavored water. It was a hit, and, like I said, it couldn’t be easier.
Add to a pitcher of water just a few slices each of lemon, lime, or other citrus (I added clementine), and, here’s what makes it a little different, cucumber slices. The cucumber adds that bit of freshness. Keep adding water to the pitcher when it gets low, and you’ll get several flavored pitchers will little effort involved. The cucumber and citrus will last a few days, so you could keep it in your fridge, and keep replenishing the water over and over again.
No more excuses to not be drinking your daily allotment of water huh? And personally, this beats any of those flavored waters on the market. I plan on keeping a pitcher of this in my fridge throughout the warm months. Try it and let me know what you think.
Way too easy not to try sometime soon.
- 1 gallon fresh water
- 3-4 slices of lemon
- 3-4 slices of lime
- 3-4 slices of other citrus (optional)
- 3-4 slices of cucumber
- Add all citrus and cucumber slices to water. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Do you have any other light beverages to share? Please do!
