My Daily Favorite
2 litres Water
1 tsp freshly grated Ginger
1 half cucumber, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
12-18 fresh mint leaves (could use dried mint, or a mint tea bag)
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight. You could have this drink fresh as well, squeeze the lemon if you are having the water right away.
-Mint could be spearmint, wild mint, or peppermint.
-Strain the water when you drink it. Most time I only take the lemon and cucumber out and drink with the mint and ginger in the water.
-Chop the mint leaves.*
-Cut the cucumber and lemon thin.*
-Grate the ginger.*
*Goal is to extract the brine.
