How to Make Cucumber and Lemon Water

Use 1 pitcher of water and add the juice of ½ a lemon and cut the other half into slices and add them to the pitcher. Then add the cucumber slices. I like to add anywhere from ½ a large cucumber or we have on-hand small Persian cucumbers and use about 2 of them cut into slices. The more cucumbers, the more cucumber flavor! Add fresh mint leaves and let the pitcher set in the refrigerator for about 1-3 hours so the flavors enhance. The longer it sets the more flavor it has.
