|Cucumber water is soooo refreshing!|

- 1 medium cucumber, scrubbed well
- Lemon/Lime, (optional)
- Warm water
- kitchen knife
- cutting board
- pitcher of water(tap or mineral water)
Trim and discard ends of both the cucumber and the lemon. Cut both the cucumber and lemon into into thin slices. You will probably only need half a cucumber for the pitcher of water. It really depends on the size of pitcher you like.
Fill a pitcher up of either tap water or your favorite mineral water. Combine cucumber and water in large pitcher; steep for 1 hour, and serve over ice. Many times I like to go to the grocery store and pick up my favorite Norwegian water.
Now you are ready to serve with ice! For a stronger taste, let the water sit in your refrigerator for an hour prior to serving. Many times I like to add mint leaves either right into the pitcher of cucumber and lemon water or in the glass. Mint makes the drink even more cooling and refreshing.
Other alternatives is to add fresh berries or orange slices too! Enjoy!
