Spa Water

Today it feels like if you stepped outside for too long, you’d melt into a puddle on the ground. Needless to say, it’s hot. Thus, saying hydrated is crucial. But after awhile, ice water just gets old. This recipe from my friend Kathy is a refreshing way to put some flavor into your water without adding sugar. Believe me, you’ll drink it by the gallon.

I used the mint from our garden, and limes from our tree. You can do many permutations on this recipe: lemon slices and fresh thyme is also a great combination.


1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
1 lime, sliced
2 sprigs of fresh mint leaves
1 sprig of rosemary


Put the ingredients in a gallon of water and let it steep for at least 2 hours. Serve over ice. To garnish, add a lime slice or min sprig to the water. When the water is gone, you can refill and reuse the ingredients. Enjoy!
