How to make cucumber, lemon and mint water

Making infused water is easy and quick. All you need to do is thinly cut up your cucumber, lemon and add your fresh mint to a large pitcher and let it chill in the fridge for at least an hour.

Letting the water infuse at room temp for about 2 hours will help the flavors infuse faster. Just be sure not to forget about it!

The longer you let the water infuse the better the flavor will be. Try to make this the night before and let it chill overnight. I also recommend using a glass pitcher.

Lemons are acidic and just like acids can ruin our teeth, it will also ruin the plastic. So if you don’t want to ingest plastic, use glass. If you are also concerned about your teeth I would suggest using a straw.
