Cucumber-Mint Water

Hands-on time 5 mins
Total time 5 mins

Makes 32 oz.

"As much as we love the hot days of summer, it's sometimes hard to escape that sticky feeling. Enter this cooling infusion. Lime, cucumber, and mint work together to create a refreshing sip that we keep in the fridge all summer long."


  • 12 slices of cucumber
  • 4 slices of lime
  • 4 large sprigs of mint
  • 28 ounces of water

How to Make It

  1. Combine the cucumber, lime, and mint in a 32-oz. Mason jar. Muddle until lightly crushed.

  2. Add the water; seal and shake for 30 seconds to combine.

  3. Serve over ice. The infusion will keep in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

  4. Authors' note: For all our water infusions, we suggest using filtered tap water or bottled spring water for the freshest-tasting results. Don't have either? Tap water can work in a pinch.
