What could be more refreshing than those elegant, chilled pitchers of cucumber-infused water offered in spa waiting areas? You can bring the same sense of serenity and healthy indulgence home by making your own spa water with simple ingredients.
Cucumber Water: peel off strips of cucumber skin to expose more of the flesh (and release more of the flavor) before slicing rounds and immersing them in a large pitcher of chilled water.
Rosemary Lime Water: float lime slices and twirl sprigs of thoroughly washed rosemary in a tall pitcher of cold water.
Watermelon Mint Water: Add chunks of watermelon (seeds removed) and mint leaves to water for an unusual flavor combination
Mint Water: Add two sprays of thoroughly washed mint and chill in fridge.
Let the water mixtures steep for at least a half hour before serving; add ice according to preference.
