Lemon Basil Cucumber Flavored Water
Prep time
Total time
You need three ingredients to flavor this one, but cucumbers, basil and lemons are generally hanging around my refrigerator in the summer anyway.
Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 1
  • 3 slices cucumber
  • 3-4 basil leaves
  • 1 slice lemon
  • 3 cups filtered water
  1. Put cucumber, basil, and lemon in a pint-and-a-half mason jar or pitcher. Cover with water.
  2. Cover tightly, shake a few times, and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Shake once more right before sipping. Enjoy!
To release more flavor from the basil leaves, cucumber and lemon you can muddle or bruise them as the last step before storing in the refrigerator.
