Notes

To get the most health benefit, it's best to leave the peel on the cucumber as it contains nutrients.
Let the mixture sit for several hours to ensure enough flavor has infused into the water.
Any of the following can be added to or used in place of the mint:
  • Raspberries
  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Lemon Slices
  • Lime Slices
  • Basil Leaves
  • Ginger
The cucumbers in the water are great to snack on too!
