- Your favorite pitcher
Here is a ridiculously simple way to flavor water. This is a perfect recipe for backyard barbecues with the family and to bring a fun non-alcoholic beverage to the party. Its totally refreshing, cheap, and really pretty.
What you need
This will take all of 2 minutes. Peel off the skin of the cucumber. Cut slices that are about 1/4 inch thick. Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! Next, do the same with the lemon, but you can keep the skin on.
Depending how much citrus flavor you like, and how much cucumber flavor you like, add accordingly. I would suggest a third of a cucumber and one whole lemon.
Add all the ingredients into the pitcher and add the water. Let this refriderate for about an hour and stir gently once or twice.
To get extra fancy, add a few mint leaves!
This is super refreshing and perfect for all ages.
