I hope I’m not the last to know about this … and if I’m not, let me share with you something amazing!
I’m talking about water. Infused with fruit. Oh, yum!
Giving credit where credit is due, I happened upon some photos of lemon in a pitcher of water while cruising Pinterest last week. I like a slice of lemon in my water, so I thought, “Why not slice a few whole lemons and throw them in a pitcher of water?” That started it!
I even have Hub hooked!
So, headed to the local grocer yesterday morning to pick up more lemons but discovered they were all green. Impatient as I am, I decided to pick up limes instead. Heading further down the produce aisle, I saw cucumbers and remembered a photo the Writer had posted a few months ago of a water glass filled with cucumbers. So I thought, “Why not?”
I did a little internet exploring about limes and discovered that people actually combine limes and cucumbers in their water, sometimes even adding mint. I don’t have any fresh mint but opted to slice up some limes (3) and a cucumber and added them to my gallon pitcher of water to chill for at least 30 minutes. In case you’re interested, everything I read said to use filtered water.
So, here’s what’s chillin’ in my fridge …
*** 30 minutes later ***
I poured myself a glass and gave Hub a taste and … WOW!
The taste? Wonderfully fresh.
