- Serves: 8 Prep: 5 minutes Total Time: 4 hours
- 8 Cups of Filtered Water
- 1 Lemon, thinly sliced
- 1 Medium cucumber, thinly sliced
- 8-12 Mint leaves
Wash the lemon and cucumber, then slice thinly. Fill a pitcher with the water, lemon, cucumber, and mint leaves. Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (better if it’s overnight!) to give the fruit time to infuse. This mixture will last two to three days.

Quick Tip: Some people complain of bitterness when drinking water that has been infusing for over a day. The bitterness comes from the rind of the lemon, to avoid this simply cut the rind off the lemon slices before infusing.
That’s all there is to this classic cucumber lemon water recipe. Drink up and enjoy!
