How to Make Cucumber Water
- 1 large cucumber (or 2 small cucumbers)
- 1 quart water
- citrus fruit slices (optional)
- fresh mint (optional)
- Wash the cucumber under cold, running water to remove any dirt or grime from the skin. It's best to use cucumbers with the skin as the peel has several nutrients. However, if you prefer to peel the cucumber, use a vegetable peeler. You can make it pretty by peeling it in alternate strips.

- Let the cucumber slices steep for an hour. For best results, you can let the cucumbers marinate overnight. Stir gently before serving.
- You add make variations of cucumber water by adding mint, chopped ginger, or citrus fruits like lemon, orange slices, or even strawberries!
